HTTPolice is a Python package that requires Python 2.7 or 3.4+. PyPy is also supported (reasonably recent versions; 5.3.1 is OK).

Like other Python packages, HTTPolice is installed with pip from PyPI. If you’re not familiar with pip, you may need to install it manually or from your OS distribution.

On Debian/Ubuntu

Depending on your setup, you may or may not need to install these packages:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev libffi-dev

Then, to install the HTTPolice command-line tool into ~/.local/bin:

$ pip install --user HTTPolice

Or, to install it system-wide:

$ sudo pip install HTTPolice

Check that the installation was successful:

$ httpolice --version
HTTPolice 0.7.0

On Fedora

Same as above, but the dependency packages are:

$ sudo dnf install python-pip gcc gcc-c++ redhat-rpm-config python-devel libxml2-devel libxslt-devel libffi-devel

On Windows

After installing a recent Python, typically all you need to do is:

C:\Users\Vasiliy\...\Python36>Scripts\pip install HTTPolice

Check that the installation was successful:

C:\Users\Vasiliy\...\Python36>Scripts\httpolice --version
HTTPolice 0.7.0

But if pip install starts trying (and failing) to compile some libraries, you may need to give it a hand: check the PyPI pages for those libraries (such as lxml or brotlipy) to find versions that have suitable pre-built binares (*-win32.whl), and install those specific versions first. For example:

C:\Users\Vasiliy\...\Python36>Scripts\pip install lxml==3.8.0
C:\Users\Vasiliy\...\Python36>Scripts\pip install brotlipy==0.7.0
C:\Users\Vasiliy\...\Python36>Scripts\pip install HTTPolice
