pip install


When I look at the site packages in Klayout path, I see package pip.

Is there way to use pip install from command line in Klayout to install new modules?

Thank you!

    My answer is maybe.

    Please try to understand one thing: KLayout only embeds Python. It is not the same thing than the Python executable. And the Python people do a good job making life hard for us embedders. Specifically on Windows. KLayout behaves a bit like python.exe, but not entirely. So a pip-alike think might work on KLayout or maybe (or likely) it does not. I have not tried myself.

    On Linux KLayout takes the system installation and it just works.

    For Windows, please see my latest post here: https://www.klayout.de/forum/discussion/1514/adding-text-on-the-layoutview-images#latest
