If you are having trouble installing ClipKIT, please contact the lead developer, Jacob L. Steenwyk, via email or twitter to get help.

To install using pip, we strongly recommend building a virtual environment to avoid software dependency issues. To do so, execute the following commands:

# create virtual environment
python -m venv .venv
# activate virtual environment
source .venv/bin/activate
# install clipkit
pip install clipkit

Note, the virtual environment must be activated to use clipkit.

After using ClipKIT, you may wish to deactivate your virtual environment and can do so using the following command:

# deactivate virtual environment
deactivate

Similarly, to install from source, we strongly recommend using a virtual environment. To do so, use the following commands:

python -m venv .venv
# activate virtual environment
source .venv/bin/activate
# install

To deactivate your virtual environment, use the following command:

# deactivate virtual environment
deactivate

Note, the virtual environment must be activated to use clipkit.
