For more information about Twisted, please see the Twisted project page. You can get older releases from our download site.

The current release is Twisted 18.9.0: [source:/tags/releases/twisted-18.9.0/NEWS?format=raw Release notes]

Ubuntu and Debian

Packages of Twisted are available in Ubuntu and Debian as 'python-twisted'.

If you wish to build and install the latest Twisted by-hand on Ubuntu ensure that you have the 'python-dev' and 'build-essential' packages installed.

An Ubuntu PPA was setup on Launchpad to obtain more recent packages:

The "Technical details about this PPA" and "Read about installing" links on that page have instructions for setting up and using it.


Mac OS X

Twisted is no longer making a .dmg which creates a system installation for OS X because OS X versions 10.5 and greater ship with Twisted installed and the default Python path configuration makes it impossible for a user to upgrade Twisted without possibly breaking applications which depend on the system Twisted installation.

OS X users may want to install Twisted from the source tarball to a different location.


Though Twisted is not fully functional or officially supported on FreeBSD (but you can help!), packages of Twisted are available in FreeBSD ports as 'devel/py-twisted'. You can choose what component of Twisted you install using command 'make config'.
