SCons Getting SCons running Installing with Python pip


pip install scons

If you are not to run scons from command line, check that Python scripts directory is added to PATH for your installation.

If you want to play with API, import SCons from Python won't work, because SCons 2.5.x and below allows to install multiple versions side-by-side. This was needed to switch between different SCons versions during development and troubleshooting. Now the more common way for this is to use virtualenv or just run it from source.
