Getting started#


This package may be installed following two procedures: either the pip package manager installation or the manual installation. The process to be followed for each of them is shown in the upcoming sections.

The pyansys-tools-versioning package currently supports Python >=3.9 on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Install the latest release from PyPi with:

python -m pip install pyansys-tools-versioning

Alternatively, install the latest from GitHub via:

python -m pip install git+

For a local development version, install with (requires pip >= 22.0):

git clone
cd pyansys-tools-versioning
python -m pip install -e .

Offline installation#

If you lack an internet connection in your local machine, the recommended way of installing pyansys-tools-versioning is downloading the wheelhouse archive from the Releases Page for your corresponding machine architecture.

Each wheelhouse archive contains all the python wheels necessary to install PyAnsys Tools Report from scratch on Windows and Linux for Python >=3.9. You can install this on an isolated system with a fresh python or on a virtual environment.

For example, on Linux with Python 3.9, unzip it and install it with the following:

unzip pyansys-tools-versioning-v<major.minor.patch> wheelhouse
python -m pip install pyansys-tools-versioning -f wheelhouse --no-index --upgrade --ignore-installed

If you are on Windows with Python 3.9, unzip to a wheelhouse directory and install using the same command as before.

Consider installing using a virtual environment. More information on general PyAnsys development can be found in the PyAnsys Developer’s Guide.
