These instructions apply to pyglet 2.0.
pyglet is a pure Python library, with no hard dependencies on other modules. No special steps or complitation are required for installation. You can install from on PyPI via pip. For example:
pip install --upgrade --user pyglet
You can also clone the repository using git and install from source:
git clone https://github.com/pyglet/pyglet.git cd pyglet python setup.py install --user
In addition, since pyglet is pure Python, you can also just copy the pyglet subfolder directly into the root of your project without installation into your local site-packages.
To play video, or a wide selection of compressed audio, pyglet can optionally use FFmpeg.
