Deploy using Anaconda

Python 3.9

Currently, some of our dependencies have issues with the latest versions of Python 3.9.x. For now, our suggestion is to use Python 3.7.x, or 3.8.x versions.

You will need Anaconda or Conda installed and Python 64bit version. Then open Anaconda Prompt and:

  1. Create new virtual environment and install mindsdb:

    conda create -n mindsdb
    
    conda activate mindsdb
    
    pip install mindsdb
    
  2. To verify that mindsdb was installed run:

    conda list
    

You should see a list with the names of installed packages.

Deploy using pip

Python 3.9

Currently, some of our dependencies have issues with the latest versions of Python 3.9.x. For now, our suggestion is to use Python 3.6.x, 3.7.x, or 3.8.x versions.

We suggest you to install MindsDB in a virtual environment when using pip to avoid dependency issues. Make sure your Python version is >=3.6 and pip version >= 19.3.

  1. Create new virtual environment called mindsdb:

    py -m venv mindsdb
    

    And, activate it:

    .\mindsdb\Scripts\activate.bat
    
  2. Install MindsDB:

    pip install mindsdb
    
  3. To verify that mindsdb was installed run:

    pip freeze
    

You should see a list with the names of installed packages.

Troubleshooting

If the installation fails, don't worry, simply follow the below bellow instruction which should fix most issues. If none of this works, try using the docker container and create an issue with the installation errors you got on our Github repository. We'll try to review the issue and give you response within a few hours.

Installation fail

Note that Python 64 bit version is required.

pip command not found fail

Depending on your environment, you might have to use pip3 instead of pip, and python3.x instead of py in the above commands e.g

pip3 install mindsdb

Installation fail

If you are using Python 3.9 you may get installation errors. Some of the MindsDB's dependencies are not working with Python 3.9, so please downgrade to older versions for now. We are working on this and Python 3.9 will be supported soon.

Installation fail

If installation fails when installing torch or torchvision try manually installing them following the simple instructions on their official website.

Installation fails because of system dependencies

Try installing MindsDB with Anaconda, and run the installation from the anaconda prompt.
