Introduction to Pika

Pika is a pure-Python implementation of the AMQP 0-9-1 protocol that tries to stay fairly independent of the underlying network support library.

If you have not developed with Pika or RabbitMQ before, the Introduction to Pika documentation is a good place to get started.

Installing Pika

Pika is available for download via PyPI and may be installed using easy_install or pip:

pip install pika


easy_install pika

To install from source, run “python install” in the root source directory.
