## Source Code

If for some reason, you are not able to obtain the source code from the appropriate branch in the Mercurial repository, you can download it directly from here:

## Binaries

### Unix and Linux users

Please use the source code to compile your own copy of Stackless Python.

Alternatively, for the versions of Stackless which it supports, you may be able to make use of the PyPI stackless-python installer. See below for details.

### Mac OS X users

These installers replace your existing Python installation. Note that Stackless should work exactly like standard Python, if the Stackless functionality is not used.

### Microsoft Windows users

If you do not wish to compile Stackless Python yourself, we provide precompiled MSI installers. These installers can be used instead of the corresponding regular C-Python installer. Alternatively you can install them alongside C-Python, if you choose the "Install just for me" option.

### PyPI Installer

Note

On Debian based system the pip installer needs to compile some missing modules. Therefore you need to install various development packages. See https://bitbucket.org/akruis/slp-installer/issue/5.

If you are using Python 2.7.x (x>=3) on Linux amd64 or Windows you can use the PyPI stackless-python installer. It works with pip or easyinstall from distribute or setuptools. It is compatible with virtualenv. Simply run:

> pip install stackless-python


or:

> easy_install stackless-python
