If you just want to use wok, then you should install it from the
Python Package Index. A good way to do that is with
$ sudo pip install wok
This will install wok and the required dependencies. It will also install some optional dependencies: the two rendering libraries, Markdown, and reStructuredTest. It will also install a syntax highlighting library, [Pygments][pymnts].
For a quick start guide to wok, check out the tutorial, which goes over some basics about content and templates. Nothing too fancy, but it should get you started.
