Epispot can be installed via pip or via Anaconda. If using pip, install with:

pip install epispot

For Anaconda, use:

conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda install -c conda-forge epispot

As a shorthand, use import epispot as epi.

You can also install the epispot-nightly package from pip:

pip install epispot-nightly

You can import it the same as import epispot as epi. Both packages cannot be used at the same time.
