System-wide installation

You can use pip to install groundwork in your local python environment:

sudo pip install groundwork

On windows system sudo is not needed.

Virtual environment

A virtual environment allows you to install and test python packages without any affect on a system-wide installation.

If not done yet, use pip to install virtualenv:

sudo pip install virtualenv

Create a virtual environment in your preferred folder with:

virtualenv venv     # venv will be the name of the folder. You may change it.

To activate it, run:

. venv/bin/activate

Or on windows:


After that your virtual environment is installed and activated. Now you can install groundwork:

pip install groundwork
