You install Yhat for Python the same way you do any other open source package. We recommend using pip.

$ pip install --upgrade yhat

If you don't want to use pip, you can always install directly from source.

$ git clone https://github.com/yhat/yhat-client
$ cd yhat-client
$ python setup.py install
