# 2.1. Installation¶

## 2.1.1. pip¶

The easiest way to install the Connectors package is probably through pip.

pip3 install connectors


If the package shall only be installed for the current user, rather than system wide, run the following command:

pip3 install --user connectors


## 2.1.2. Installation from source¶

To retrieve the sources, the git-repository of the Connectors package has to be cloned.

git clone https://github.com/JonasSC/Connectors.git Connectors


The Connectors at the end of this command specifies the directory, in which the local copy of the repository shall be created. After cloning, move to that directory.

cd Connectors


Now the Connectors package can be installed system wide with the following command:

python3 setup.py install


Alternatively, the package can be installed only for the current user.

python3 setup.py install --user
