How to Install docformatter

Install from PyPI

The latest released version of docformatter is available from PyPI. To install it using pip:

$ pip install --upgrade docformatter


If you want to use pyproject.toml to configure docformatter, you’ll need to install with TOML support:

$ pip install --upgrade docformatter[tomli]

This is only necessary if you are using Python < 3.11. Beginning with Python 3.11, docformatter will utilize tomllib from the standard library.

Install from GitHub

If you’d like to use an unreleased version, you can also use pip to install docformatter from GitHub.

$ python -m pip install git+

Replace the tag v1.5.0-rc1 with a commit SHA to install an untagged version.
