Quick start

To install dagster and dagit into an existing Python environment, run:

$ pip install dagster dagit

This will install the latest stable version of the core dagster packages in your current Python environment.

Dagster is tested on Python 3.8, 3.7, 3.6, 3.5, and 2.7.

Note that some libraries may not work on Python 3.8 yet, as PySpark does not yet have support for Python 3.8.

Using Python 3 is strongly encouraged, as the official EOL for Python 2 was January 1, 2020.

To check that Python and the pip package manager are already installed in your environment, you can run:

$ python --version
$ pip --version

We strongly recommend installing dagster inside a Python virtualenv. If you are running Anaconda, you should install dagster inside a Conda environment.

If you would like to install dagster from source, please see the section on Contributing.
