PageKite for Windows

  1. Download and install Python 2.x, from Python.org.
  2. Download pagekite.py.
  3. Save the program to your Desktop.
  4. Double-click the icon to run PageKite!

The first time you run the program, it will ask a few questions and guide you through the process of setting up your first kite.

Note: Python 3.x does not currently work. We recommend Python 2.7.

PageKite for Mac OS X

In a console, run the following command:

$ curl -s https://pagekite.net/pk/ |sudo bash

If you have an older Mac, your version of curl may not recognize our SSL certificate, in which case the following command will work better:

$ curl -s http://pagekite.net/pk/ |sed -e 's/https/http/g' |sudo bash

In both cases, the installer (view source) will download and install the latest version of pagekite.py for use on the command-line. You can re-run this command at any time to upgrade.

If you prefer, you can download the program yourself and install wherever you like. Just remember to make the program executable by running: chmod +x pagekite.py
