Installing on macOS
This guide will help you install the Groundlight SDK on macOS. The Groundlight SDK requires Python 3.7 or higher.
Ensure that you have the following installed on your system:
- Python 3.7 or higher
- pip (Python package installer)
Assuming you have Python 3.7 or higher installed on your system, you can proceed with the following steps to install or upgrade the Groundlight SDK:
Installing Groundlight SDK
To install the Groundlight SDK using pip, run the following command in your terminal:
pip install groundlight
If you're also using
python2 on your system, you might need to use
pip3 install groundlight
The Groundlight SDK is now installed and ready for use.
Checking Groundlight SDK Version
To check if the Groundlight SDK is installed and to display its version, you can use the following Python one-liner:
python -c "import groundlight; print(groundlight.__version__)"
Upgrading Groundlight SDK
If you need to upgrade the Groundlight SDK to the latest version, use the following pip command:
pip install --upgrade groundlight
Or, if you're using
pip3 install --upgrade groundlight
After upgrading, you can use the Python one-liner mentioned in the "Checking Groundlight SDK Version" section to verify that the latest version is now installed.
Getting the right Python Version
To check your installed Python version, open a terminal and run:
If you see a version number starting with "3.7" or higher (e.g., "3.7.5" or "3.9.0"), you're good to go. If not, you might need to upgrade Python on your system.
Upgrading Python on MacOS
brew install python
After upgrading, verify the Python version by running
python --version or
python3 --version, as described earlier.
