Riak Python Client


The tutorial documentation has been converted to the Basho Docs as the Taste of Riak: Python. The old tutorial that used to live here has been moved to the Github Wiki and is likely out-of-date.


  1. Ensure Riak installed & running. (riak ping)
  2. Install the Python client:
  1. If you use Pip, pip install riak.
  2. If you use easy_install, run easy_install riak.
  3. You can download the package off PyPI, extract it and run python setup.py install.


All development is done on Github. Use Issues to report problems or submit contributions.
