Installing rgitools

rgitools relies on the same packages as OGGM. Refer to the installation page of OGGM first, then do:

pip install git+

Development version

If you want to explore the code or participate to its development, we recommend to clone the git repository (or your own fork):

git clone

Then go to the project root directory:

cd rgitools

And install rgitools in development mode (this is valid for pip or conda environments):

pip install -e .

You are almost there! The last step is to check if everything works as expected. From the rgitools directory, type:

pytest .

If everything worked fine, you should see something like:
