Install Python packages¶
After you have obtained the
rdmo-app, you need to install the
rdmo package and the other python dependencies.
Change to the
rdmo-app directory and create a Virtual Environment (this is done as your user or the created
rdmo user, not as
cd rdmo-app python3 -m venv env source env/bin/activate # on Linux or macOS call env\Scripts\activate.bat # on Windows pip install --upgrade pip setuptools # update pip and setuptools
After the virtual environment is activated, the
rdmo package can be installed using
pip install rdmo
The virtual environment encapsulates your RDMO installation from the rest of the system. This makes it possible to run several applications with different python dependencies on one machine and to install the dependencies without root permissions.
Important: The virtual enviroment needs to be activated, using
source env/bin/activate or
call env\Scripts\activate.bat, everytime a new terminal is used.
