Python app Installation

Step-by-step guide to installation with Python.

Integrate our Jet Bridge plugin with Python installation. You can place it behind your VPN, in your own VPC, and works locally. We wonโ€™t get access to your data, however, you will still receive updates normally.


  • Python 2.7 or 3.4+

  • pip - package manager for Python

  • Any of the following SQL Databases:

    • PostgreSQL

    • MySQL

    • SQLite

    • Oracle

    • Microsoft SQL Server

    • Firebird

    • Sybase

  • localhost or web server with an external IP


1. Install Python 2.7 or 3.4+ (comes with pip).

2. Install jet_bridge package using pip or update it from the command line as follows:

pip install jet_bridge -U
# or for Python 3
pip3 install jet_bridge -U

3. Install an appropriate database adapter and libraries:

# for PostgreSQL
pip install psycopg2

# for PostgreSQL + PosGIS
pip install GeoAlchemy2==0.6.2
pip install Shapely==1.6.4

# for MySQL
pip install mysqlclient

# for MSSQL
pip install pyodbc

4. Run Jet Bridge from the command line as shown below:

# for Ubuntu/MacOS/Linux/etc (UNIX systems)
PROJECT={{project_name}} TOKEN={{token}} jet_bridge

# for Windows
set PROJECT={{Project Name}} && set TOKEN={{Token}} && jet_bridge

{Project Name} and {Token} is automatically generated when you connect resource.

If you are using Jet Bridge just for HTTP requests (and not SQL) you can use Project Token as value for {Token}.

Go to the API key and below the API keys


This command creates a config if you run it for the first time.

After filling all required options you can now run Jet Bridge by executing the command once again:


5. Finish your project installation by opening this link in your browser (usually, it opens automatically):


localhost is your Jet Bridge HOST and 8888 is its PORT.

If you want to run Jet Bridge on a different host or port, read the instructions on the Configuration page.
