Using pip to install packages

Does installing a python package via pip require a gateway restart.?

The gateway can’t use or see packages you install on your system with pip.

OK thank you. Is there a way it could be added into future builds?

I think this article on how to add 3rd party modules is still up to date:

That won’t work for the pagackage I was trying to install. ( I tried installing the package on my desktop , then copying the library folders however it started giving me errors. seems to require Python 2.7 and possibly some C-based python packages as dependencies, so that’s not going to work in Ignition either way.

Ignition only implements Python 2.5 right now and can’t use packages with native C parts.

Looks like this is possible in Ignition 8.
