You can install Azure Python package either for Python 2 or Python 3 using pip (Python package index). Before you are able to install it though you have to:
First, make sure
pip is installed, of course. It’s available on most Linux distributions such as
python-pip (for Python 2) or
python3-pip (for Python 3).
Second, ensure that you have the latest
setuptools Python packages. This can be done with the commands:
pip install --upgrade distribute
pip install --upgrade setuptools
Third, install the necessary operating system dependencies
python-dev. In Ubuntu you can do it with the command:
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev python-dev
Finally, install the full Azure bundle package with the command:
pip install --pre azure
In some cases where you have both Python 2 and Python 3, you have to run
pip3 instead of just
pip to invoke pip for Python 3.
Once you have installed the bundle you can start using it following the official Azure instructions.
