Install with pip:

$ pip install shorten

Shorten uses redis-py as its Redis client and it will be downloaded automatically. This dependency may be removed in a future version.

If you want to run the tests, install the requirements in requirements.txt:

$ virtualenv --no-site-packages .python && source .python/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

A Redis server and Memcached server are required for testing. The memcached and libevent (for gevent) development libraries are also required. For Debian-based systems, install everything by:

$ apt-get install python-dev libmemcached-dev libevent-dev redis memcached
