Getting started


For a project

It is recommended to install Textstat in a virtual environment for the project you're working on.

poetry add textstat
pipenv install textstat
pip install textstat


If you just want to use Textstat as a command line tool, you can install it standalone in it's own dedicated virtual environment using pipx.

pipx install textstat

Install pipx if you haven't already.

With git

Alternatively, you can install directly from source if you would prefer. This will install the latest from main.

poetry add git+
pipenv install git+
pip install git+
pipx install git+

If you require a specific version or branch, you can specify the tag to use.

poetry add git+
poetry add git+
poetry add git+
