Using conda to install floyd-cli¶
If you are using Anaconda Python, you can also use
conda to install
floyd-cli, instead of
conda create -n <insert-your-env-name-here> source activate <insert-your-env-name-here> pip install -U floyd-cli
Please see this guide on creating virtual environments for Python with conda.
Using sudo to install floyd-cli¶
Try this if you see a permission error, such as
Permission denied or
Access is denied. If you are not using virtualenv and you are installing
floyd-cli globally you may need to use
sudo pip install -U floyd-cli
Dealing with missing dependencies when installing floyd-cli¶
Not all python environments are installed the same way. So sometimes you may run
into install issues. If
pip cannot install dependencies itself, you may see errors like:
... Failed building wheel for scandir ...
... No distributions matching the version for backports.tempfile (from floyd-cli) ...
In such cases, you can install the dependencies directly:
pip install -U scandir pip install -U backports.tempfile
and then try installing
Python.h: No such file or directory¶
If you get this error in a linux environment:
... Python.h: No such file or directory
you need to install
sudo apt-get install python-dev
