Python Configuration

ResInsight has a gRPC Remote Procedure Call interface with a Python Client interface. This interface allows you to interact with a running ResInsight instance from a Python script. The Python client package is compatible with Python 3.

The Python client package is available for install via the Python PIP package system with pip install rips as admin user, or pip install --user rips as a regular user.

On some systems the pip command may have to be replaced by python -m pip.
