Installation Failures#

If you encounter issues installing the Inductiva API package, there are several steps you can take:

Ensure you have a working pip#

pip install --upgrade pip

Use virtualenv or venv to isolate dependencies#

If installing the package fails, you can retry it on a new Python virtual environment. A virtual environment allows you to have a fresh Python environment with isolated dependencies.

In your shell, run:

python -m venv <venv>

In that command, you should replace <venv> with the path (e.g., .venv) in which you would like to create the environment. Then, to activate the environment (again, correctly replacing <venv>), run:

For bash/zsh:

source <venv>/bin/activate

For cmd.exe (Windows):


For PowerShell (Windows):


After activating the virtual environment, you can install the package as described below:

pip install --upgrade inductiva
