Supported platforms

Currently the following platforms are supported:

  • Linux Debian and Ubuntu (all features)
  • Other Linux (all features but dependent on the support for latest gnutls, twisted and other libraries)
  • MacOSX (all features)
  • FreeBSD (all features)
  • Maemo/ Nokia tablet N810 - Basic SIP signaling and presence work, no audio (the pjsip audio driver needs to be patched), no MSRP (depends on greenlet, which needs to be ported to ARM)

Porting to Windows and other operating systems (like Symbian and iPhone OS) should be easy as long as C/Python environments are supported. MS Windows port is the next on the roadmap.

If you wish to help with porting see the support section on the main wiki page.


You should install preferably the trunk version, which is updated and tested on a daily basis on MacOSX and Debian/Ubuntu distributions. The source code is managed using [http://darcs.net darcs] version control tool. The darcs repository can be fetched with:

darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-sipsimple

To obtain the incremental changes after the initial get, go to the sipsimpleclient directory and run:

cd python-sipsimple
darcs pull
