Note that RSMTool currently works with Python 3.8, 3.9, and 3.10.
Installing with conda¶
Currently, the recommended way to install RSMTool is by using the
conda package manager. If you have already installed
conda, you can skip straight to Step 2.
conda, follow the instructions on this page.
Create a new conda environment (say,
rsmtool) and install the RSMTool conda package for your preferred Python version. For example, for Python 3.8, run:
conda create -n rsmtool -c conda-forge -c ets python=3.8 rsmtool
Activate this conda environment by running
conda activate rsmtool. You should now have all of the RSMTool command-line utilities in your path. 
From now on, you will need to activate this conda environment whenever you want to use RSMTool. This will ensure that the packages required by RSMTool will not affect other projects.
RSMTool can also be downloaded directly from GitHub.
Installing with pip¶
You can also use
pip to install RSMTool instead of
conda. To do so, simply run:
pip install rsmtool
Note that if you are on macOS, you will need to have the following line in your
.bashrc for RSMTool to work properly:
