Currently python3.6, python3.5 and python2.7 are supported. It is highly suggested to have a python system wide installation (by default the official python distributions are installed in user's home directory) with the PATH environment variable including it (if you change the PATH variable remember to reboot the system before running the build procedure, this is not strictly required but will ensure the PATH is updated). If the PATH variable does not contain the path of your python installation you will see a warning in the build log/output.
create a Plugins/ directory (if it does not exist) in your project and copy the directory UnrealEnginePython into it
from the file explorer right click on the project main file and choose 'generate visual studio project files'
open visual studio, you should now see Plugins/UnrealEnginePython in your solution explorer
run the compilation from visual studio
once the compilation ends, double check the python libraries can be found by the plugin (they must be in the system PATH like previously described, or brutally copy them in the Binaries/Win64 directory of the just built plugin)
now you can re-run the unreal engine editor
Check in the releases page (https://github.com/20tab/UnrealEnginePython/releases) if there is a binary version that matches your configuration (otherwise open an issue asking us for it [please specify the python version too]) and download it. Binary releases for MacOSX expects an official python installation (the packages you get from python.org). Create (if it does not already exist) a Plugins directory in your project root directory (at the same level of Content/ and the .uproject file) and unzip the plugin into it. If your project is named FooBar you will end with FooBar/Plugins/UnrealEnginePython. Open your project and go to the Edit/Plugins menu. Go to the bottom and under "Project/Scripting Languages" enable UnrealEnginePython. Restart your project and you should see the PythonConsole under the "Window/Developer Tools" menu. Binary releases are mainly useful for editor scripting, if you want to package your project for distribution and you need the python runtime, you need a source release (see below). If instead, you want to package your project without python, just remember to change the UnrealEnginePython.uplugin to have this line: https://github.com/20tab/UnrealEnginePython/blob/master/UnrealEnginePython.uplugin#L20 set as "Editor" instead of "Runtime".
The build procedure will try to automatically discover python installations. If you need custom paths, just edit here:.
install the latest official python distribution from python.org (the installation will end in the "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/X.Y" directory).
create a new unreal engine blank c++ project (NOT a blueprint one, otherwise XCode will not be initialized)
create a Plugins directory in the project directory
move to the Plugins directory and clone the plugin repository
restart the editor and a popup should appear asking your for confirmation of the build of the plugin.
Once the plugin is built, go to the output log console and filter for 'Python'. You should see the Python VM banner.
Currently the suggested distribution is Ubuntu Xenial (LTS 16.04) 64bit. Obviously you need to already have an Unreal Engine build (note that on ubuntu xenial you need to install the clang-3.5 package to build the editor). Both python2.7 and python3.5 are supported and the default configuration assumes python3 (so ensure to install the python3-dev package). NOTE: always run your project from a terminal so you can see startup logs (they are really useful when building the plugin the first time, if you cannot build the plugin, open an issue on github pasting the related log lines). If you want to use python2 (or another specific version) just edit the Source/UnrealEnginePython/UnrealEnginePython.Build.cs file and change the pythonHome string accordingly (ensure to have the python2.7-dev package installed).
Create a new C++ project and close the editor once the project is fully started
go to the just created project directory and create the Plugins folder
move to the Plugins folder and clone the plugin repository:
re-open your project, this time you will get a popup asking you for re-building the python plugin. Choose yes and wait.
Just remove the .so files in Plugins/UnrealEnginePython/Binaries/Linux and pull the latest code. At the next run the build procedure wil be started again.
Currently only Windows, MacOSX, Linux and Android are supported.
