I needed to install some python related packages for a project I was testing out. The particular project required html5lib and markdown2 to be installed using the easy_install command. First make sure that you have the python-setuptools packages installed so you can use the easy_install command. If you do not have this package installed you can follow the directions here to get easy_install working. Once the easy_install command is working properly run the commands below to install html5lib and markdown2.
