Before installing vdist, it is important that you have the Docker daemon running. I recommend getting the latest version of Docker to use with vdist.
Installing vdist is as easy as this:
$ pip install vdist
Alternatively, you can clone the source directly from Github and install its dependencies via pip. When doing that, I recommend using virtualenv. For example:
$ git clone https://github.com/objectified/vdist $ cd vdist $ virtualenv . $ . bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements.txt
