The easiest way to install ODPSlides is:
pip install odpslides OR on Linux sudo pip install odpslides OR perhaps pip install --user odpslides
In case of error, see pip Error Messages
Installation From Source¶
Much less common, but if installing from source, then
the best way to install odpslides is still
After navigating to the directory holding ODPSlides source code, do the following:
cd full/path/to/odpslides pip install -e . OR on Linux sudo pip install -e . OR perhaps pip install --user -e .
This will execute the local
setup.py file and insure that the pip-specific commands in
setup.py are run.
ODPSlides is run from python scripts, typically from the command line.
If your editor supports script execution, most editors will execute the script when the function key F5 is pressed.
See the Examples page for getting started.
pip Error Messages¶
If you get an error message that
pip is not found, see https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing.html for full description of
There might be issues with
pip failing on Linux with a message like:
InsecurePlatformWarning or Cannot fetch index base URL https://pypi.python.org/simple/
Certain Python platforms (specifically, versions of Python earlier than 2.7.9) have the InsecurePlatformWarning. If you encounter this warning, it is strongly recommended you upgrade to a newer Python version, or that you use pyOpenSSL.
pip may be mis-configured and point to the wrong PyPI repository.
You need to fix this global problem with
pip just to make python usable on your system.
If you give up on upgrading python or fixing
you might also try downloading the odpslides source package
(and all dependency source packages)
from PyPI and installing from source as shown above at Installation From Source
