Installation guide

The 1.12.1 release of django-flashpolicies supports Django 2.2 and 3.0 on the following Python versions:

  • Django 2.2 supports Python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8.
  • Django 3.0 supports Python 3.6, 3.7, and 3.8.

Normal installation

The preferred method of installing django-flashpolicies is via pip, the standard Python package-installation tool. If you don’t have pip, instructions are available for how to obtain and install it, though if you’re using a supported version of Python, pip should have come bundled with your installation of Python.

Once you have pip, type:

pip install django-flashpolicies

If you don’t have a copy of a compatible version of Django, this will also automatically install one for you, and will install a third-party library required by some of django-flashpolicies’s validation code.

Installing from a source checkout
