Installing development tools#

To create and run workflows in Flyte, you must install Python and Flytekit. We recommend installing conda or another Python virtual environment manager to manage Flytekit and other dependencies, but if you do not, you can simply install Flytekit with pip.

1. Install Python#

Python version 3.8x or higher is supported. To install Python, follow the download instructions for your operating system on the Python downloads site.

If you already have Python installed, you can use conda or pyenv to install the recommended version.

3. Install Flytekit#

To install or upgrade Flytekit, run the following command:

pip install -U flytekit
