Installing JsonGit is easy. It’s recommended you install within a virtualenv.

JsonGit has been tested with Python 2.7.1 and 2.6.5.


Libgit2 is used to build and modify the git repository. You can find instructions for installing it here.

With Pip

If you want to use JsonGit in your project now, pip is the fastest and easiest way to install.

JsonGit is hosted on PyPI, so you can install it in one line:

$ pip install jsongit

From Source

If you want to hack on JsonGit, you should grab the source.

You can clone it from the GitHub repository:

$ git clone

Then, install the requirements:

$ cd jsongit
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Finally, install jsongit:

$ python install


If you’ve installed from source, it’s easy to make sure everything works.

$ pip install nose
$ nosetests
