# Installation¶

The easiest way to install netCDF-SCM is with conda

# if you're using a conda environment, make sure you're in it
conda install -c conda-forge netcdf-scm


It is also possible to install it with pip

# if you're using a virtual environment, make sure you're in it
pip install netcdf-scm


However installing with pip requires installing all of Iris’s dependencies yourself which is not trivial. As far as we know, Iris cannot be installed with pip alone.
