ssh-deploy-key is normally installed via pip. However, on some systems, there are source files that must be installed first.
Install the Prerequisites¶
ssh-deploy-key depends on the Paramiko ssh library, which requires the Python sources. You can install these using the normal package managers for your OS.
sudo apt-get install python-dev
Red Hat/Centos (yum)¶
sudo yum install python-devel
On macs, the Python sources do not need to be installed, but a compiler is required. And compilers are not pre-installed by default.
Normally, you can just run the pip command to install ssh-deploy-key (see below), and if no compiler is currently on your system, you will be prompted to install one:
If this happens, click the ‘install’ button, then run the pip command again.
Install ssh-deploy-key via Pip¶
Once the development stuff is in place, ssh-deploy-key is installed with the pip command. Pip is the standard Python package installation tool. To get it, see http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/installing.html
sudo pip install ssh-deploy-key
