- Python 3.7
Some features of the API are only supported by more recent versions of the ShotGrid server. These features are added to the Python API in a backwards compatible way so that existing scripts will continue to function as expected. Accessing a method that is not supported for your version of ShotGrid will raise an appropriate exception. In general, we attempt to document these where possible.
You can download the latest release from Github or clone the repo to your local filesystem. You’ll need to save it somewhere your local Python installation can find it.

Installing the Master Branch From Github¶
If you wish to install the current master, use the following command:
pip install git+https://github.com/shotgunsoftware/python-api.git
The master branch contains the latest revisions and while largely considered “stable” it is not an official packaged release.
Installing A specific Version From Github¶
To install a specific version of the package from Github, run the following command. This example installs the v3.0.26 tag, replace the version tag with the one you want:
pip install git+https://email@example.com
If you’re using pip with requirements.txt, add the following line:
From a local copy of the repository, you can run
python setup.py install to copy the package inside your python
site-packages. Note that while
setuptools will complain about syntax errors when installing the library, the library is fully functional. However, it ships with both Python 2 and Python 3 copies of
httplib2, which will generate syntax errors when byte-compiling the Python modules.
