The quickest way

Docta is written in Python, so if you're familiar with its installer tools:

$ pip install docta

Anyway, Python must present in system for running Docta. You may check it with command:

$ python --version
Python 2.7.6

Versions 2.7.x and 3.2.x or newer are great, older ones may also work.

If you have Python installed but pip-way is not for you for some reason:

$ git clone
$ cd python-docta
$ python install

Sometimes you may also need sudo for the last command on UNIX systems:

$ sudo python install
