Python – How to install Colorama in Python


I downloaded the colorama module for python and I double clicked the The screen flashed, but when I try to import the module, it always says 'No Module named colorama'

I copied and pasted the folder under 'C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages' and tried to run the setup from there. Same deal. Am I doing something wrong?


Best Solution

Installing with pip is almost always the way to go. It will handle downloading the package for you, as well as any dependencies. If you don't have pip, see


pip install colorama


sudo pip install colorama

Ba-boom! Done.
