You will need Python version 2.7 or better to run dataflake.ldapconnection.

It is advisable to install dataflake.ldapconnection into a virtualenv in order to obtain isolation from any “system” packages you’ve got installed in your Python version (and likewise, to prevent dataflake.ldapconnection from globally installing versions of packages that are not compatible with your system Python).

After you’ve got the requisite dependencies installed, you may install dataflake.ldapconnection into your Python environment using the following command:

$ easy_install dataflake.ldapconnection


$ pip install dataflake.fakeldap

If you use zc.buildout you can add dataflake.fakeldap to the necessary eggs section to have it pulled in automatically.

When you easy_install or pip dataflake.fakeldap, the pyldap libraries are installed if they are not present.
