The recommended version of Python for use with this client is Python 2.7.

You must have `Protocol Buffers`_ installed before you can install the Riak Client. From the Riak Python Client root directory, execute::

python install

There is an additional dependency on the Python package `setuptools`. Please install `setuptools` first, e.g. ``port install py27-setuptools`` for OS X and MacPorts.

Unit Test
To run the unit tests against a Riak server (with default TCP port configuration) on localhost, execute::

python test

If you don't have `Riak Search <>`_ enabled you can set the ``SKIP_SEARCH`` environment variable to skip that tests.

If your Riak server isn't running on localhost, use the environment variables ``RIAK_TEST_HOST`` and ``RIAK_TEST_HTTP_PORT`` and ``RIAK_TEST_PB_PORT=8087`` to specify where to find the Riak server.
