At the moment, the recommended procedure for installing Documenteer for stack work is to pip-install it into the set up Conda environment, using the version corresponding to the master branch of the pipelines_lsst_io repository.


Before starting this tutorial, you’ll need a working stack. For more information, see the LSST Science Pipelines installation guide.

The stack environment must be set up in the shell that you are installing Documenteer with.

Pip installation of Documenteer

Install Documenteer based on the requirements of the pipelines_lsst_io repository:

curl -O
pip install -r requirements.txt


Do this step after having set up the stack with the setup command.
