You’ll need Python >= 3.6 (see Python version compatibility if you require support for older versions).
We recommend using the
Python distributions to ensure you have all dependencies installed and the
conda package manager available.
Installing Anaconda does not require administrative rights to your computer and
doesn’t interfere with any other Python installations in your system.
Installing with conda¶
You can install pooch using the conda package manager that comes with the Anaconda distribution:
conda install pooch --channel conda-forge
Installing with pip¶
Alternatively, you can also use the pip package manager:
python -m pip install pooch
Installing the latest development version¶
You can use
pip to install the latest version of the source code from
python -m pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/fatiando/pooch
The required dependencies should be installed automatically when you install
pip. Optional dependencies have to be installed
Testing your install¶
This step is optional.
We ship a full test suite with the package. To run the tests, you’ll need to install some extra dependencies first:
After that, you can test your installation by running the following inside a Python interpreter or Jupyter notebook:
import pooch pooch.test()
Python version compatibility¶
If you require support for older Python versions, please pin Pooch to the following releases to ensure compatibility:
