These requirements must be met:
  • Python 2.6.x or Python 2.7.x. Python 3.x is not supported.
  • CMIS provider compliant with CMIS 1.0 or CMIS 1.1


  1. If you don’t have Python installed already, do so.
  2. If you don’t have setuptools installed already, do so.
  3. Once setuptools is installed, type easy_install cmislib
  4. That’s it!

Once you do that, you should be able to fire up Python on the command-line and import cmislib successfully.

>>> from cmislib import CmisClient, Repository, Folder

To validate everything is working, run some Tests or walk through some Examples.
