Hi, I am totally new to Orchest. Is there any way I can install google-colab into a Python environment? I tried pip install but ended up getting this error.
note: This error originates from a subprocess, and is likely not a problem with pip.
      error: legacy-install-failure
      
      Ɨ Encountered error while trying to install package.
      ā•°ā”€> pandas
      
      note: This is an issue with the package mentioned above, not pip.
      hint: See above for output from the failure.
      [end of output]
  
  note: This error originates from a subprocess, and is likely not a problem with pip.
error: subprocess-exited-with-error
Tried reinstalling different versions of pandas too, but not helping. Can someone show me the way? Thank you
Yannick

Hi @Sam Daniel šŸ‘‹! Sorry to hear that you are having troubles getting started.
I can install google-colab into a Python environment?
Are you simply running
pip install google-colab
? And another question, are you self-hosting the open source or are you using Orchest Cloud?

I've tried running
pip install google-colab
and the problem seems to be that it tries to install
pandas~=0.24.0
which fails because its wheel can't be build. You can fix either way: ā€¢ If you maintain
google-colab
then you can change the requirements so that
pandas~=1.5
is used. Which should install just fine. ā€¢ Use
mamba
to install
google-colab
so that it doesn't try and build pandas:
mamba install -y google-colab
