Before you start#
Before you jump in to any tutorials, we recommend you do the following:
Read through an introduction to Jina concepts to understand the basic components that will be used in the tutorial.
Work in a virtual environment#
We highly recommend you work in a virtual environment to prevent conflicts in packaging versions. This applies not just to Jina, but Python as a whole.
For most purposes, you can install Jina with:
pip install jina
For more installation options, see our installation guide.
Python vs YAML#
Jina supports YAML in many circumstances for easier deployment. For more information, see our guide on coding in Python and YAML in Jina.
