Installing LithopsΒΆ

You can install Lithops using pip:

$ pip3 install lithops

This will install the latest version.

If you already have Lithops installed, you can upgrade to the last version using pip:

$ pip3 install --upgrade lithops

You can also install Lithops from Github and use the master branch. Using the master branch allows you to use the latest features and bug fixes, but keep in mind that the master branch is considered unstable and other problems caused by features that are still under development may arise.

$ git clone https://github.com/lithops-cloud/lithops
$ cd lithops
$ python3 setup.py

It is highly recommended to use a Virtual Environment for your Python project that uses Lithops. Without a Virtual Environment, pip will install Lithops globally, while with a Virtual Environment, Lithops is installed locally and is only available when the Virtual Environment is activated.

$ python3 -m venv lithops-venv
$ source lithops-venv/bin/activate
(lithops-venv) $ pip install lithops
