3. Installation


We currently support Python versions 3.7, 3.8, 3.9.


The CLTK supports POSIX–compliant operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Subsystem for Linux, etc.). If you use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), we recommend you upgrade to WSL2 at least, and install the CLTK on your Linux filesystem, e.g. under /home.

Install via Pip:

$ pip install cltk

For a pre-release version:

$ pip install --pre cltk

To install from source, clone the Git repository and run:

$ git clone https://github.com/cltk/cltk.git
$ cd cltk/
$ make install

See Development for more on configuring your environment for CTLK development.
