django-downloadview has been tested with Python [1] 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8. Other versions may work, but they are not part of the test suite at the moment.

Installing django-downloadview will automatically trigger the installation of the following requirements:


As a library

In most cases, you will use django-downloadview as a dependency of another project. In such a case, you should add django-downloadview in your main project’s requirements. Typically in

from setuptools import setup

    # ...

Then when you install your main project with your favorite package manager (like pip [2]), django-downloadview and its recursive dependencies will automatically be installed.


You can install django-downloadview with your favorite Python package manager. As an example with pip [2]:

pip install django-downloadview


Check django-downloadview has been installed:

python -c "import django_downloadview;print(django_downloadview.__version__)"

You should get installed django-downloadview’s version.
