Pycha needs PyCairo to works since it uses the Cairo graphics library. If you use Linux you will probably already have it installed so you don’t have to do anything. If you use Windows these are the recommended steps for installing PyCairo:
Pycha is distributed as a Python Egg so is quite easy to install. You just need to type the following command:
And Easy Install will go to the Cheeseshop and grab the last pycha for you. If will also install it for you at no extra cost :-)
You can use buildout to compile and build pycha dependencies automatically. To do so just type a couple of commands:
python bootstrap.py --distribute bin/buildout
At the end of the process you will have a python interpreter at bin/py with pycha in its PYTHONPATH ready to be imported.
