I am running an ubuntu derivative that runs a bit behind in the updates. The version I'm running

 ~$ quickly --version

  Python interpreter: /usr/bin/python 2.7.2
  Python standard library: /usr/lib/python2.7

  Quickly used library: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/quickly
  Quickly data path: /usr/share/quickly
  Quickly detected template directories:
          /usr/share/quickly/templates/

I have tried finding a PPA for quickly to add to my source file list and I have found

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/quickly and https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/precise/quickly/precise-updates I even found what I thought was the developers PPA http://ppa.launchpad.net/quickly/daily-build/ubuntu For the latter I get the 404 error both when is says the distribution is set to oneric or precise.

Would I need to compile the source or is there some way to add the ppa without using ubuntu?

What about this question suggests this the asker isn't running Ubuntu? –  andrewsomething Aug 18 '12 at 1:24
    
@andrewsomething "I am running an ubuntu derivative [...]" . Which isn't to say it is necessarily not an official derivative. –  belacqua Aug 23 '12 at 14:35
    
@belacqua Eek! Somehow I missed that. –  andrewsomething Aug 23 '12 at 18:30

Quickly depends on multiple other packages that also have newer version in Ubuntu 12.04. You should either upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 or install it in a virtual machine and use that for your development environment.

I don't see the download files url in your list. Give those a try if you haven't already.
