Prerequisites: CloudBridge runs on Python 2.7 and higher. Python 3 is recommended.

We highly recommend installing CloudBridge in a virtualenv. Creating a new virtualenv is simple:

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate

Latest stable release

The latest release of CloudBridge can be installed from PyPI:

pip install cloudbridge

Latest unreleased dev version

The development version of the library can be installed directly from the GitHub repo:

$ pip install --upgrade git+

Developer installation

To install additional libraries required by CloudBridge contributors, such as tox, clone the source code repository and run the following command from the repository root directory:

$ git clone
$ cd cloudbridge
$ pip install --upgrade --editable .[dev]

Checking installation

To check what version of the library you have installed, do the following:

import cloudbridge
