Install packages in the Python for Scientific Computing interpreter

Communicator

Is it possible to install a python package (e.g. xgboost) in the Python for Scientific Computing interpreter app?

Hi gwobben,

I think it is possible to install additional python packages into the app with some manual compile and build work, but Splunk does not support nor recommend doing this.

Thanks!

Due to the passage of time, I'll put this here: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/497850/machine-learning-toolkit-is-there-documentation-ab.html

Hi Hunters,

Thanks for the reply. Let me rephrase: HOW can I install additional packages? I'm not really looking to recompile the entire thing but it would be nice to use Python imports.

Have you found out how to this already? I am curious as well.

No you just can't.. I've chosen a different route by running my python code on a different (docker) machine with an API.
