  • How to Install PyKX?

    Posted by ratata on February 2, 2022 at 12:00 am

    Hi, I’m new to KDB+ and Q. I want to install PyKX on my Windows 10.

    I tried `pip install pykdb` on my Python console but it returned the following:


    Note: you may need to restart the kernel to use updated packages.
    ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pykdb
    ERROR: No matching distribution found for pykdb


    Any help will be appreciated. Many thanks!


    P.S: I apologize if this question is too trivial.

    Hello @ratata

    Welcome to the KX Community! The perfect place to guide you on your KDB+/Q journey.

    No question is too trivial by any means.

    PyKDB’s home of information is located here: https://code.kx.com/pykdb/

    This home page presents links to PyKDB installation documentation, references resources that you can reach out to, offers comparisons, overviews, license information, examples and much more.

    *Information for clarification – this is currently only available for customers of KX Insights.

    Another link that we share on our KX Interfaces documentation is: https://github.com/brogar/pykdb – this is referenced for your convenience, but it is not a KX endorsed interface and has no affiliation with KX. *Therefore, we do not support it.

    Also, here is a previous welcome post with linked resources that might be helpful when new to kdb+/q: https://community.kx.com/t5/General/Hello-folks-this-is-new-q-bie/m-p/11056

    Hope this helps you!

    Happy Coding,
