Compose is available for Python 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, and 3.11. It can be installed from PyPI, conda-forge, or from source.


To install Compose, run the following command:

$ python -m pip install composeml
$ conda install -c conda-forge composeml
git clone
cd compose
python -m pip install .


It is also possible to run Compose inside a Docker container.

You can do so by installing it as a package inside a container (following the normal install guide) or creating a new image with Compose pre-installed, using the following commands in your Dockerfile:

FROM python:3.8-slim-buster
RUN apt-get update && apt-get -y update
RUN apt-get install -y build-essential python3-pip python3-dev
RUN pip -q install pip --upgrade
RUN pip install composeml
