Install splinter

Basically, there are two ways to install Splinter:

Install a stable release

If you’re interested on an official and almost bug-free version, just run from the Terminal:

$ [sudo] pip install splinter

Install under-development source-code

Otherwise, if you want Splinter’s latest-and-greatest features and aren’t afraid of running under development code, run:

$ git clone git://
$ cd splinter
$ [sudo] python install


    • in this second case, make sure Git is installed.
