Jython installation

Apologies in advance if I’m missing something obvious…

I’m a MXJ newb looking to get a Python interpreter running in Max. Jython seems to be the best option but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to install it. I’ve looked at all the documentation I can find and the readme suggests that the installation documentation is embedded in one of the accompanying java files. I just don’t know how to get at it.

Help please!

Download and unpack all the JAR files in the net.loadbang.jython distribution on GitHub (here) and put them into your Cycling '74/java/lib directory (alongside max.jar, jitter.jar and jode-xxxxx.jar). You should then be good to go. There’s an examples.zip file of patchers on GitHub as well.
