# Introduction¶

To work with pygrass you need a up-to-date version of GRASS 7. You can obtain a recent version following the information on the main web site of GRASS, and you can read more about compilation on the GRASS wiki

git clone https://lucadeluge@code.google.com/p/pygrass/

At this point you have to install pygrass, so enter in the right folder and launch with administration permission

python setup.py install

The last action before start to work with pygrass is to run GRASS 7 and from the console launch python or ipython (the second one is the the suggested)
