Using 3rd Party Python Packages and Modules
Installing Python Packages and Modules via PIP command
You can use pip Python package management command to install Python packages into Meco™ packages.
Say you would like to install
requests library for all platforms. Initialize a development environment where you would
have the package that you want to install the lib into and cd to its Python path folder, like so;
# On Linux OS and Mac OS cd PACKAGE_NAME\python
# On Windows OS cd PACKAGE_NAME/python
Now you can run the following command to install the
request library to current path, which is Python path of the package.
Please note, dot
. that follows
--target flag refers to current directory.
# On Linux OS and Mac OS pip3 install requests --target=.
Please not; you must provide absolute path of the Python folder of the package on Windows OS.
# On Windows OS pip3 install requests --target="<DRIVE>:\<PATH>\meco\master\developers\<USER_NAME>\development\main\<PACKAGE_NAME>\python"
You can release
PACKAGE_NAME package to make newly installed
requests library available for everyone.
