Error installing scrapy in python 3.5

I am installing Scrapy in Python 3.5. I am referring to the installation guide here .

I have installed

pip
and
conda
. I tried both ways mentioned in the guide, but am getting this error:

error installing scrapy

I have already installed
pip
and
minoconda
:

conda install -c scrapinghub scrapy


and

pip install Scrapy


What is wrong with the installation?

Answer

You're trying to install scrapy in the python interpreter, you should install the package in your terminal. What's more, one requirement of installing scrapy is python 2.7, you're using python 3.5


Update:

Good news: Python 3 is Coming to Scrapy, you can try pip install scrapy==1.1.0rc1 now. Note that there are still some limitations, but won't be long that scrapy will have full of 3.x support. Pay close attention to the scrapy development ;)
