Installation

Installing Pinecone client libraries

For the Pinecone Python client, use the following commands at the command line (the terminal):

pip install -U pinecone-client
Note: Version 3 of Python uses pip3

The command is:

pip3 install -U pinecone-client

Installing Pinecone in a Jupyter notebook

Alternatively, you can install Pinecone in a Jupyter notebook:

!pip install -U pinecone-client

We strongly recommend installing Pinecone in a virtual environment. For more information on using Python virtual environments, see:
