Project description

Python wrapper and version management tool for the solc Solidity compiler.

Forked from py-solc.


  • Full support for Solidity >=0.4.11
  • Install Solidity on Linux, OSX and Windows
  • Compile Solidity from source on Linux and OSX


Py-solc-x allows the use of multiple versions of solc, and can install or compile them as needed. If you wish to compile from source you must first insall the required solc dependencies.


via pip

pip install py-solc-x

via setuptools

git clone

python3 install

Py-solc-x is tested on Linux, OSX and Windows with solc versions >=0.4.11.

To run the test suite:

pytest tests/

By default, the test suite installs all available solc versions for your OS. If you only wish to test against already installed versions, include the --no-install flag.
