You can install Gurobi Optimizer for Python in three different ways:
Starting with Gurobi 9.1, you can use pip to install Gurobi into your currently active Python environment:
python -m pip install gurobipy
Pip is the standard way of installing Python packages and should work on most platforms and systems. Use this command to install a specific version:
python -m pip install gurobipy==9.1.2
Note: The pip installation method does not provide Gurobi license tools. If you have not yet set up a license on your machine then you will need to use one of the other installation methods or install the license tools package.
If you are using Anaconda Python, you can install Gurobi through Gurobi's conda channel:
conda install -c gurobi gurobi
Use this command to install a specific version:
conda install -c gurobi gurobi=9.1.2
Note: Gurobi is not available for all Python versions (full list).
