You can get the library directly from PyPI:

pip install django-encrypted-fields

The installation into a virtualenv is heavily recommended.


Virtualenv is probably what you want to use for developing Python applications.

If you are on Mac OS X or Linux, chances are the one of the following two commands will work for you:

$ sudo easy_install virtualenv

or even better:

$ sudo pip install virtualenv

One of these will probably install virtualenv on your system. Maybe it’s even in your package manager. If you use Ubuntu, try:

$ sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv

If you are on Windows (or none of the above methods worked) you must install pip first. For more information about this, see installing pip. Once you have it installed, run the pip command from above, but without the sudo prefix.

Once you have virtualenv installed, just fire up a shell and create your own environment. You could create a project folder and a venv folder within:

$ mkdir myproject
$ cd myproject
$ virtualenv venv

Now, whenever you want to work on a project, you only have to activate the corresponding environment. On Mac OS X and Linux, do the following:

$ . venv/bin/activate

If you are on Windows, use the following command:

$ venv\scripts\activate

Either way, you should now be using your virtualenv (notice how the promt of you shell has changed to show the active environment).

And if you want to exit your virtualenv, use the following command:

$ deactivate

Enter the following command to get transip-api installed in your virtualenv:

$ pip install virtualenv

A few seconds later and your are good to go.
