To use XIST you need the following software packages:

  • Python 3.5;
  • cssutils;
  • Pillow (if you want to use automatic image size calculation);
  • lxml (if you want to parse “broken” HTML; at least version 3.0);
  • cx_Oracle (if you want to use ll.orasql);
  • pytest (if you want to run the test suite)
  • execnet (if you want to use ssh URLs)
  • and a C compiler supported by pip, if you want to install the source distribution.


pip is used for installation so you can install this package with the following command:

$ pip install ll-xist

For some versions a Windows distribution is provided. To install it, double click it, and follow the instructions.
