Install the Python agent

The Python agent is installed as a standard Python package, and uses the Contrast service to communicate results.

By default, the service is started automatically when your application starts. It's also possible to configure the agent to communicate with a standalone Contrast service that runs independently.

Install the agent with PyPi or update the Python agent.


The Python agent does not currently support running on Macs with the M1 chip.
