You need either Python 2.7, or else Python 3.3 or greater.
zsincludes a C extension, you’ll also need a C compiler and Python headers. On Ubuntu or Debian, for example, you get these with:
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev
Once you have the ability to build C extensions, then on Python 3 you should be able to just run:
pip install zs
On Python 2.7, things are slightly more complicated: here,
backports.lzmapackage, which in turn requires the liblzma library. On Ubuntu or Debian, for example, something like this should work:
sudo apt-get install liblzma-dev pip install backports.lzma pip install zs
zsalso requires the following packages:
requests. However, these are all pure-Python packages which pip will install for you automatically when you run
pip install zs.

- Developer dependencies (only needed for hacking on source):
- Cython: needed to build from checkout
- nose: needed to run tests
- nose-cov: because we use multiprocessing, we need this package to get useful test coverage information
- nginx: needed to run HTTP tests
