Before installing django-soapbox, you’ll need to have a copy of Django already installed. For information on obtaining and installing Django, consult the Django download page, which offers convenient packaged downloads and installation instructions.
The 1.4 release of django-soapbox supports Django 1.8, 1.9, and 1.10, on the following Python versions:
- Django 1.8 suports Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5.
- Django 1.9 supports Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5.
- Django 1.10 supports Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5.
It is expected that django-soapbox 1.4 will work without modification on Python 3.6 once it is released.
Although Django 1.8 supported Python 3.2 at the time of its release, the Python 3.2 series has reached end-of-life, and as a result support for Python 3.2 has been dropped from django-soapbox.
