The easy way:

Download and install the package from the python package index (pypi):

pip install django-markup

Note that django-markup ships with some filters ready to use, the requirements of those filters are not installed by default. If you want to use all of the filters right away, you can install their latest packages with:

pip install textile smartypants docutils markdown python-creole

Install the latest development version

The latest development version is available from GitHub. You have to install git and checkout the package with:

git clone git://

then install it manually:

cd django-markup
python install

Note that the development version is not fully tested and may contain bugs, so I prefer to use the latest package from pypi.
