Installing Fil

Fil requires macOS or Linux, and Python 3.7 or Later. You can either use Conda, a sufficiently new version of Pip, or higher-level tools like Poetry or Pipenv.


To install on Conda:

$ conda install -c conda-forge filprofiler

Pip (or similar tools)

To install the latest version of Fil you’ll need Pip 19 or newer. You can check the current version like this:

$ pip --version
pip 19.3.0

If you’re using something older than v19, you can upgrade by doing:

$ pip install --upgrade pip

If that doesn’t work, try running your code in a virtualenv (always a good idea in general):

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

Assuming you have a new enough version of pip, you can now install Fil:

$ pip install filprofiler
