Installing Sycamore libraries locally#

You can install and use the Sycamore data preparation libraries locally to write and iterate on custom code.


Sycamore currently runs on for Linux and Mac OS, and please see the top of the README for Python version compatibility. To install, run

pip install sycamore-ai

For certain PDF processing operations, you also need to install poppler, which you can do with the OS-native package manager of your choice. For example, the command for Homebrew on Mac OS is:

brew install poppler

For an example Sycamore script, check out the default preparation script.
