We generally recommend creating a conda environment to isolate any code
from other dependencies. The
ISLP package does not have unusual dependencies, but this is still
Mac OS X / Linux#
To create a conda environment in a Mac OS X or Linux environment run:
conda create --name islp
To run python code in this environment, you must activate it:
conda activate islp
On windows, create a
Python environment called
islp in the Anaconda app. This can be done by selecting
Environments on the left hand side of the app’s screen. After creating the environment, open a terminal within that environment by clicking on the “Play” button.
Having completed the steps above, we use
pip to install the
pip install ISLP
Python packages change frequently. The labs here are built with specific versions of the various packages.
To ensure you have the same package versions as those built here, run:
pip install -r https://raw.githubusercontent.com/intro-stat-learning/ISLP_labs/v2/requirements.txt
For more specific install instructions go to ISLP_labs.
ISLP labs use
torch and various related packages for the lab
on deep learning. Most of the requirements are included in the requirements for
ISLP though the labs
torchvision. These will be installed by the
torch and related libraries change frequently, you will note that we
have pinned the versions at specific versions that were used to make
current verisons of the labs.
Mac OS X#
If JupyterLab is not already installed, run the following after having activated your
pip install jupyterlab
Either use the same
pip command above or install JupyterLab from the
Home tab. Ensure that the environment is your
environment. This information appears near the top left in the
The notebooks for the labs can be run in Google Colab with a few caveats:
Labs that use files in the filesystem will require one to mount your Google Drive. See help
The packages will have to be reinstalled each time a new runtime is started. For most labs, inserting
pip install ISLPat the top of the notebook will suffice, though Colab will ask you to restart after installation.
