The easiest way is to install dataset from the Python Package Index using pip or easy_install:

To install it manually simply download the repository from Github:

$ git clone git://
$ cd dataset/
$ python install

Depending on the type of database backend, you may also need to install a database specific driver package. For MySQL, this is MySQLdb, for Postgres its psycopg2. SQLite support is integrated into Python.
