Install using pipx
You can install the latest stable release of pontos from the Python Package Index (pypi) using pipx
python3 -m pipx install pontos
Install using pip
NOTE: The ‘pip install’ command does no longer work out-of-the-box in newer distributions like Ubuntu 23.04 because of PEP 668. Please use the installation via pipx instead.
You can install the latest stable release of pontos from the Python Package Index (pypi) using pip
python3 -m pip install --user pontos
Install using poetry
Because pontos is a Python library you most likely need a tool to handle Python package dependencies and Python environments. Therefore we strongly recommend using poetry.
You can install the latest stable release of pontos and add it as a dependency for your current project using poetry
poetry add pontos
pontos uses poetry for its own dependency management and build process.
First install poetry via pipx
python3 -m pipx install poetry
in the checkout directory of pontos (the directory containing the
pyproject.toml file) to install all dependencies including the packages only
required for development.
Afterwards activate the git hooks for auto-formatting and linting via autohooks.
poetry run autohooks activate
Validate the activated git hooks by running
poetry run autohooks check
