Autobuild is available as a PyPI package:

easy_install autobuild


pip install autobuild

of if you don't have pip or easy_install

hg clone
cd autobuild
python install
KBnote.png Note: On Windows there is no need to perform this install step. Stop here and resume following the Windows build instructions. python install does not work correctly. You will need to edit/rename some files to make it work! See Autobuild/Cygwin for an alternative.

You may need administrative privilege on your system to install into system command directories.

KBtip2.png Tip: If you do not have administrative privilege on your system, or for any reason you wish to avoid adding autobuild into system-level Python or command directories, you can use virtualenv, e.g.:
mkdir ~/virtualenvs  # or any directory for your Python-package environments
virtualenv "$VENV"
. "$VENV/bin/activate"

Then your pip install autobuild command will install autobuild under $VENV instead of into system directories. (Note that this pip install command will work either way. If you have an active virtualenv, it will install into the virtualenv; if not it will attempt to install into system directories.)
