pysyncrosim can be installed using either the
pip package managers.
conda is a general package manager capable of installing packages from many sources, but
pip is strictly a Python package manager. While the installation instructions below are based on a Windows 10 operating system, similar steps can be used to install pysyncrosim for Linux.
Before beginning the installation of
pysyncrosim, make sure you have the latest release of SyncroSim installed.
pysyncrosim was tested and developed using Python 3.8 and SyncroSim 2.3.10. Because
rasterio for integrating spatial data, it also requires a C library dependency:
Follow these steps to get started with
conda and use
conda to install
condausing the Miniconda or Anaconda installer (in this tutorial we use Miniconda). To install Miniconda, follow this link and under the Latest Miniconda Installer Links, download Miniconda for your operating system. Open the Miniconda installer and follow the default steps to install
conda. For more information, see the conda documentation.
conda, open the command prompt that was installed with the Miniconda installer. To find this prompt, type “anaconda prompt” in the Windows Search Bar. You should see an option appear called Anaconda Prompt (miniconda3). Select this option to open a command line window. All code in the next steps will be typed in this window.
You can either install
pysyncrosimand its dependencies into your base environment, or set up a new
condaenvironment (recommended). Run the code below to set up and activate a new
condaenvironment called “myenv” that uses Python 3.8.
# Create new conda environment conda create -n myenv python=3.8 # Activate environment conda activate myenv
You should now see that “(base)” has been replaced with “(myenv)” at the beginning of each prompt.
Set the package channel for
conda. To be able to install
pysyncrosim, you need to access the
conda-forgepackage channel. To configure this channel, run the following code in the Anaconda Prompt.
# Set conda-forge package channel conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda install. Installing
pysyncrosimwill also install its dependencies:
# Install pysyncrosim conda install pysyncrosim
pysyncrosim should now be installed and ready to use!
pip install. Installing
pysyncrosim will also install its dependencies:
# Make sure you are using the latest version of pip pip install --upgrade pip # Install pysyncrosim pip install pysyncrosim
