intbitset is on PyPI so all you need is a C compiler and pip:
pip install intbitset
intbitset library provides a set implementation to store sorted
unsigned integers either 32-bits integers (between
2**31 - 1 or
intbitset.__maxelem__) or an infinite range
with fast set operations implemented via bit vectors in a Python C
extension for speed and reduced memory usage.
inbitset class emulates the Python built-in set class interface
with some additional specific methods such as its own fast dump and load
>>> from intbitset import intbitset >>> x = intbitset([1,2,3]) >>> y = intbitset([3,4,5]) >>> x & y intbitset() >>> x | y intbitset([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
intbitset additionally support the pickle protocol, the iterator protocol and can
behave like a
sequence that can be sliced. Because the intergers are
always stored sorted, the fist element of a non-empty set  is also
the min() integer and the last element [-1] is also the max() integer
in the set.
When compared to the standard library
operations such as intersection, union and difference can be up to 5000
faster for dense integer sets.
Complete documentation is available at <http://intbitset.readthedocs.io> or can be built using Sphinx:
pip install Sphinx python setup.py build_sphinx
Running the tests are as simple as:
python setup.py test
Running the tests on multiple Python versions:
pip install tox tox
To regenerate the C code with Cython:
pip install cython cython intbitset/intbitset.pyx
Then commit the regenarted C source and update the CHANGE.rst
