Thanks for giving
pls a try.
pls, being a Python package, needs Python 3.8 or newer. There are two approaches to installing
pls, using either
pipx (which is a great tool for managing Python binaries) or
pip (which comes pre-installed with Python).
pls, you need to have the following software installed.
- Python 3.8
pipx(your preferred mode of installation)
Some features need additional dependencies.
pipx is a fine way to install executable Python packages globally while still isolating them in virtual environments. This allows for clean upgrades and uninstalls. You can learn more about
pipx from their documentation.
For new installs, we recommend using this approach.
pipx you need to first install
pipx! Read the
pipx documentation to learn how.
$ pipx install pls
$ pipx upgrade pls
$ pipx uninstall pls
This is the simplest way to install and use
pls. It does have one major drawback: it installs lots of packages to the global namespace that will be left behind after
pls is uninstalled.
We recommend giving
pipx a try.
To install using
pip, you need to have
pip. If you have Python installed, it is very likely you also have
pip installed too.
$ pip install --user pls
$ pip install --user --upgrade pls
$ pip uninstall pls
To check if
pls is installed and discoverable in your path, run the following command. If the version number you see is the same as the latest version on PyPI, you're all set!
$ pls --version $ pls -v
