Official releases

Official releases are available from PyPI. You can install it using the pip:

pip install django-mptt

You can also download the .zip distribution file and unpack it. Inside is a script named Enter this command:

python install

…and the package will install automatically.

Development version

Alternatively, you can get the latest source from our git repository:

git clone git:// django-mptt

Add the resulting folder to your PYTHONPATH or symlink the mptt directory inside it into a directory which is on your PYTHONPATH, such as your Python installation’s site-packages directory.

You can verify that the application is available on your PYTHONPATH by opening a Python interpreter and entering the following commands:

>>> import mptt
>>> mptt.VERSION
(0, 5, '+dev')

When you want to update your copy of the source code, run git pull from within the django-mptt directory.


The development version may contain bugs which are not present in the release version and introduce backwards-incompatible changes.

If you’re tracking master, keep an eye on the recent Commit History before you update your copy of the source code.
