Install Python packages
Install Python packages into a virtual environment or Conda environment.
py_install(packages, envname = NULL, method = c("auto", "virtualenv", "conda"), conda = "auto", python_version = NULL, ...)
Character vector with package names to install.
The name, or full path, of the environment in which Python packages are to be installed. When
NULL(the default), the active environment as set by the
RETICULATE_PYTHON_ENVvariable will be used; if that is unset, then the
r-reticulateenvironment will be used.
Installation method. By default, "auto" automatically finds a method that will work in the local environment. Change the default to force a specific installation method. Note that the "virtualenv" method is not available on Windows.
Path to conda executable (or "auto" to find conda using the PATH and other conventional install locations).
The requested Python version. Ignored when attempting to install with a Python virtual environment.
On Linux and OS X the "virtualenv" method will be used by default ("conda" will be used if virtualenv isn't available). On Windows, the "conda" method is always used.
