# Installing with pip¶

Platforms: MacOS X, Linux, and Windows

Installing glue with pip is possible, although you will need to first make sure that you install Qt and either PyQt or PySide, since these cannot be automatically installed with the pip command. See the section on Installing PyQt or PySide for more details.

Assuming that you have either PyQt or PySide installed, you can install glue along with all required and optional dependencies using:

pip install glueviz[all]


The above will include domain-specific plugins. If you only want to install glue with all required and only non-domain-specific optional dependencies (for example excluding the optional dependencies for astronomy), you can do:

pip install glueviz[recommended]


And finally, if you don’t want to install optional dependencies at all:

pip install glueviz


Note that this will still installed required dependencies.
