Installation with pip¶

tox itself into a virtualenv environment.
Install from clone¶
Consult the GitHub page how to clone the git repository:
and then install in your environment with something like:
$ cd <path/to/clone> $ pip install .
or install it editable if you want code changes to propagate automatically:
$ cd <path/to/clone> $ pip install --editable .
so that you can do changes and submit patches.
[Linux/macOS] Install via your package manager¶
You can also find tox packaged for many Linux distributions and Homebrew for macOs - usually under the name of python-tox or simply tox. Be aware though that there also other projects under the same name (most prominently a secure chat client with no affiliation to this project), so make sure you install the correct package.
