SSH deploy key is installed from the command line with pip.
On some systems, there are development packages that must be installed first.
ssh-deploy-key depends on the excellent Paramiko ssh library, which requires the Python sources. You can install these using the normal package managers for your OS.
sudo apt-get install python-dev
Red Hat/Centos (yum)
sudo yum install python-devel
You will need a compiler installed – either XCode or gcc. Normally, you can just run the pip command to install ssh-deploy-key (see below), and if no compiler is available on your system, you will be prompted to install one:
If this happens, click the ‘install’ button, then run the pip command again.
