User install

HydroMT and its plugins are python packages. If you do not have a python installation we recommend using conda and Miniconda.

The hydromt_wflow plugin is available from PyPi and conda-forge, but we recommend installing with conda in a specific environment. To create a new hydromt-wflow environment from the command or conda prompt, do:

conda create --name hydromt-wflow

This will create a new empty conda environment named hydromt-wflow. To install hydromt and the hydromt_wflow plugin in this new environment using conda do:

conda activate hydromt-wflow
conda install -c conda-forge hydromt_wflow

This will install almost all dependencies including the core hydroMT library and the model API as well as the model plugins wflow and wflow_sediment. To complete the installation, add manually the hydroengine dependency from pypi (not available from conda):

pip install hydroengine

Alternatively to install hydromt_wflow using pip do: Note: make sure this is installed in the same environment as hydromt.

pip install hydromt_wflow

Developper install

If you want to download the wflow plugin directly from git to easily have access to the latest developments or make changes to the code you can use the following steps.

First, clone hydromt’s wflow plugin git repo from github, then navigate into the the code folder (where the envs folder and pyproject.toml are located):

$ git clone
$ cd hydromt_wflow

Then, make and activate a new hydromt-wflow conda environment based on the envs/hydromt-wflow.yml file contained in the repository:

$ conda env create -f envs/hydromt-wflow.yml
$ conda activate hydromt-wflow

Finally, for a fixed installation, build and install hydromt_wflow using pip.

$ pip install .

If you wish to make changes in hydromt_wflow, you should make an editable install of hydromt. This is possible using the flit package and install command.

For Windows:

$ flit install --pth-file

For Linux:

$ flit install -s
