We strongly suggest to use a virtual environment such as Conda to work with the Descartes Labs Platform. For more information please see Managing a Development Environment.
Install the latest client library via pip
pip install descarteslabs
To install with optional recommended dependencies (blosc, NumPy, and matplotlib):
pip install "descarteslabs[complete]"
The latest development version can always be found on GitHub. It can be installed via pip
pip install -U git+https://github.com/descarteslabs/descarteslabs-python.git
The client library requires shapely, which can be hard to install on Windows with
conda install shapely pip install descarteslabs
