Note that using pip outside virtualenv is not recommended since it ignores your systems package manager. If you aren’t comfortable debugging package installation issues, this is not the option for you.
Create and activate a virtualenv:
Upgrade pip and install dtFabric dependencies:
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install dtfabric
To deactivate the virtualenv run:
Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 LTS
To install dtFabric from the GIFT Personal Package Archive (PPA):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gift/stable
Update and install dtFabric:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3-dtfabric
The l2tbinaries contains the necessary packages for running dtFabric. l2tbinaries provides the following branches:
master; branch intended for the “packaged release” of dtFabric and dependencies;
dev; branch intended for the “development release” of dtFabric;
testing; branch intended for testing newly created packages.
The l2tdevtools project provides an update script to ease the process of keeping the dependencies up to date.
To install the release versions of the dependencies run:
C:\Python3\python.exe tools\update.py --preset dtfabric
