Installation

Before proceeding, please note that mvt requires Python 3.6+ to run. While it should be available on most operating systems, please make sure of that before proceeding.

Dependencies on Linux

First install some basic dependencies that will be necessary to build all required tools:

sudo apt install python3 python3-pip libusb-1.0-0

libusb-1.0-0 is not required if you intend to only use mvt-ios and not mvt-android.

Dependencies on Mac

Running MVT on Mac requires Xcode and homebrew to be installed.

In order to install dependencies use:

brew install python3 libusb

libusb is not required if you intend to only use mvt-ios and not mvt-android.

Installing MVT

If you haven't done so, you can add this to your .bashrc or .zshrc file in order to add locally installed Pypi binaries to your $PATH:

export PATH=$PATH:~/.local/bin

Then you can install MVT directly from pypi

pip install mvt

Or from the source code:

git clone https://github.com/mvt-project/mvt.git
cd mvt
pip3 install .

You now should have the mvt-ios and mvt-android utilities installed.
