Getting the client as an executable

You can also get the the latest version of the client as an executable file from here

  • Under Job Name, click on the environment link that matches your Python version (2.7.x or 3.5.x) and Windows version (32 bit or 64 bit).

  • Then click on the Artifacts tab on the right.

  • Click on the .exe file to download it.

Note

This executable file is standalone and doesn't need to be installed.

Place the executable inside your project's root folder. Then open Command Prompt and change the directory to your project. If your folder is located at:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\project_name

Then enter the command:

cd C:\Users\<username>\Documents\project_name

Note

If you're using the executable on Windows, type tx.exe instead of tx, e.g. tx.exe help push

Upgrading the client

To upgrade the client, run:

$ pip install --upgrade transifex-client

You can also see which version of the client you're currently running by using this command:

$ tx --version
