We recommend using the latest version of Python 3. VANTAGE6 supports Python 3.5 or newer. Older versions of python will not work due to the use of f-strings.
For more details on how to install Python, please read this section.
The latest release can be found in the pypi repository. VANTAGE6 can be installed by executing the following command in your python environment:
pip install vantage
An alternative way of installing VANTAGE6 is to clone our GitHub repository and install it from there. This enables the user to use chose the specific branch in order to make some adjustments to the source code.
git clone https://github.com/IKNL/ppDLI.gitcd ppDLIgit checkout DEV # optionalpip install -e .
Since the Node runs in a Docker container it is possible to run a node without installing Python. See this page on how to do this.
