In this section, we will be installing Meltano as an application that you will be able to access on the command line (i.e., the terminal). We currently do not have a double click installer at this time, but it is in our roadmap and we will be sure to update this page when we have one!
You may refer to https://realpython.com/installing-python/ for platform specific installation instructions.
To check if you have the correct Python version, open your terminal and use the following commands to check the version:
$ python --version Python 3.6.1
pip is a package installer that comes automatically with Python 3+. This is also what we will be using to install Meltano. Here are some commands related to
pip that may be of interest:
# Check version of pip $ pip --version
python is not working, try
python3 instead. This would be the case if you have both Python 2+ and 3+ installed.
$ pip install meltano
$ meltano --version meltano, version X.XX.X
That's it! Meltano is now be available for you to use. Now we can create a Meltano project.
