Developer Guide Overview
This guide assumes you have checked-out the repository. It is recommended that you install Hydra in a virtual environment like conda or virtualenv.
Install Miniconda and create an empty Conda environment with:
conda create -n hydra38 python=3.8 -qy
The core Hydra framework supports Python 3.6 or newer. You may need to create additional environments for different Python versions if CI detect issues on a supported version of Python.
Activate the environment:
conda activate hydra38
From the source tree, install Hydra in development mode with the following commands:
# install development dependencies
pip install -r requirements/dev.txt
# install Hydra in development (editable) mode
pip install -e .
