The fastest way to get the latest stable version of spiderman up and running is through pip:

$ pip install spiderman-package

From source

To get the most up to date version of spider install directly from source, though stability is not guarenteed. The development version can be found on GitHub.

Installing from GitHub is straightforward, simply type

$ git clone

To ‘clone’ the repository, then cd into the folder and install using the setup script:

$ sudo python install

And that’s it! (Note that you’ll need to cd out of the source directory before you can import spiderman.)


An Ipython notebook is included with a few examples, I recommend running it to test everything is working correctly. (built in test functions coming soon)
