The latest LIVVkit release can be installed via Anaconda/Miniconda (preferred):

conda install -c conda-forge livvkit

or Python pip:

pip isntall --user livvkit

LIVVkit 3.0 is being developed and tested against Python 3.6+, although earlier versions may work. If you require Python 2, you may use LIVVkit 2, but it is no longer supported in conjunction with the Python 2 End of Life.

If you’re having problems installing LIVVkit, try the advanced installation below, and/or open an issue on github.


In order to extend or contribute to LIVVkit, we recommend installing LIVVkit from the source code. First, clone the source from GitHub:

git clone

Then, you can install an “editable” version of LIVVkit into a Python 3.6+ development environment by:

cd LIVVkit
pip install -e .[develop]

This will allow you to checkout different versions of LIVVkit, make changes, etc. and have those changes immediately reflected in your Python environment.

If you’re having problems installing/developing/using LIVVkit, open an issue on github.
