This is a Python package, so you’ll need to have Python installed to use it. If you’re using linux, you probably already have Python. If you’re on Windows, you can download a Python installer from Anaconda , Active State , or even WinPython .
Once you have Python, you can install this package by opening a terminal window and typing the command:
$ easy_install kicost
$ pip install kicost
Note that if you install KiCost using
pip on a Windows system running Python 2.7,
using the default option that web scrapes with parallel processes may cause
MANY errors. You can avoid this problem by:
easy_installto install KiCost, or
- use the
-sKiCost option to serialize the web scraping.
On Linux, to install KiCost on python3, use:
$ pip3 install kicost
