Install from PyPI¶
If you are looking to contribute or wish to install from source using
please see Contributing.
First of all, you need Python 3.7 or newer. Check if you have Python and what version by running:
You need to make sure you have
pip, the Python package installer. You’ll also need a C compiler and the Python development headers to install some Mopidy extensions, like Mopidy-Spotify.
This is how you install it on Debian/Ubuntu:
sudo apt install build-essential python3-dev python3-pip
And on Arch Linux from the official repository:
sudo pacman -S base-devel python-pip
And on Fedora Linux from the official repositories:
sudo dnf install -y gcc python3-devel python3-pip
Then you’ll need to install GStreamer >= 1.14.0, with Python bindings. GStreamer is packaged for most popular Linux distributions. Search for GStreamer in your package manager, and make sure to install the Python bindings, and the “good” and “ugly” plugin sets.
If you use Debian/Ubuntu you can install GStreamer like this:
sudo apt install \ python3-gst-1.0 \ gir1.2-gstreamer-1.0 \ gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 \ gstreamer1.0-plugins-good \ gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly \ gstreamer1.0-tools
If you use Arch Linux, install the following packages from the official repository:
sudo pacman -S \ gst-python \ gst-plugins-good \ gst-plugins-ugly
If you use Fedora you can install GStreamer like this:
sudo dnf install -y \ python3-gstreamer1 \ gstreamer1-plugins-good \ gstreamer1-plugins-ugly-free
If you use Gentoo you can install GStreamer like this:
emerge -av gst-python gst-plugins-meta
gst-plugins-metais the one that actually pulls in the plugins you want, so pay attention to the USE flags, e.g.
If you use macOS, you can install GStreamer from Homebrew:
brew install \ gst-python \ gst-plugins-base \ gst-plugins-good \ gst-plugins-ugly
Install the latest release of Mopidy:
sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade mopidy
This will use
pipto install the latest release of Mopidy from PyPI. To upgrade Mopidy to future releases, just rerun this command.
Now, you’re ready to run Mopidy.
If you want to use any Mopidy extensions, like Spotify support or Last.fm scrobbling, you need to install additional Mopidy extensions.
You can install any Mopidy extension directly from PyPI with
pip. To list
all the extensions available from PyPI, run:
python3 -m pip search mopidy
To install one of the listed packages, e.g.
Mopidy-MPD, simply run:
sudo python3 -m pip install Mopidy-MPD
Note that extensions installed with
pip will only install Python
dependencies. Please refer to the extension’s documentation for information
about any other requirements needed for the extension to work properly.
For a comprehensive index of available Mopidy extensions, see the Mopidy extension registry.
