To know your way around the project, I strongly recommend reading the file. It covers everything you need to know about contributing to Hypatia, as well as navigating the project.

Getting Started

If you have just one version of Python installed, simply use:


Otherwise, if you want to install for a specific version of Python, use something like:

python3.3 scripts/bootstrap

If the bootstrap fails, you can try to install yourself:

  1. Install Pygame (platform-specific). Installing Pygame is a different process on various systems. See the Installing Pygame section below.
  2. pip install --user .

Checkout the Demo

$ cd demo
$ python

Installing Pygame

You can skip this section if the bootstrap worked for you.

Installing Pygame on various platforms. I assume you have Python installed and know how to use pip.

FreeBSD, DragonflyBSD, PC-BSD, etc.

The easiest thing to do is use Python 2.7. You can simply:

sudo pkg install py27-game


sudo pkg_add pygame

Debian, Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install python-pygame

Mac OS X

Install pygame through Homebrew. You may want to install Python through Homebrew as well.

# install homebrew
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
# install pygame through homebrew
brew install homebrew/python/pygame


For Python 2.x I recommend using Pygame’s official Windows installers.

If you’re using Python 3.x, I recommend using Christoph Gohlke’s unofficial Pygame binaries. Make sure to download the whl specific to your Python version and architecture (win32 vs win_amd64). To install the whl do the following in command prompt (in the directory containing the whl):

pip install wheel
pip install pygame-*.whl
