Babel Downloads

Babel is made available under the BSD license.

If you have a recent version of Setuptools or Distribute installed, you can directly install Babel using the easy_install command-line tool:

easy_install Babel

This downloads and installs the latest version of the Babel package.

If you have an older Babel release installed and would like to upgrade, add the “-U” option to the above command.

Latest Development Source Code

Please note:

Babel doesn't run directly from a Subversion checkout without extra preparations. What you need to do to work from a checkout is documented on SubversionCheckout.

We use Subversion for source revision control and code sharing.

The Subversion repository URL for the Babel project is at:


The latest revision can be checked out with the following command:

svn co http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/babel/trunk babel

(Alternatively, you can use https for an encrypted connection, which also helps getting around clueless firewalls that haven't heard of WebDAV yet.)

If you have a recent version of Setuptools installed, you can just do:

easy_install http://svn.edgewall.org/repos/babel/trunk/
