The package is tested against Python 3.9, 3.10, 3.11 on 64-bit Linux, macOS and Windows. We recommend running the platform with the latest stable version of Python, and in a virtual environment to isolate the dependencies.

From PyPI

To install the latest binary wheel (or sdist package) from PyPI:

pip install -U nautilus_trader


Also, the following optional dependency ‘extras’ are separately available for installation.

  • betfair - package required for the Betfair integration

  • docker - package required for docker when using the IB gateway

  • ib - package required for the Interactive Brokers adapter

  • redis - packages required to use Redis as a cache database

For example, to install including the docker , ib and redis extras using pip:

pip install -U nautilus_trader[docker,ib,redis]

From Source

Installation from source requires the Python.h header file, which is included in development releases such as python-dev . You’ll also need the latest stable rustc and cargo to compile the Rust libraries.

For MacBook Pro M1/M2, make sure your Python installed using pyenv is configured with –enable-shared:

PYTHON_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" pyenv install <python_version>

See .

It’s possible to install from source using pip if you first install the build dependencies as specified in the pyproject.toml . However, we highly recommend installing using poetry as below.

  1. Install rustup (the Rust toolchain installer):

  2. Enable cargo in the current shell:

    • Linux and macOS:

      source $HOME/.cargo/env
    • Windows:

      • Start a new PowerShell

  3. Install poetry (or follow the installation guide on their site):

    curl -sSL | python3 -
  4. Clone the source with git , and install from the projects root directory:

    git clone
    cd nautilus_trader
    poetry install --only main --all-extras

From GitHub Release

To install a binary wheel from GitHub, first navigate to the latest release . Download the appropriate .whl for your operating system and Python version, then run:

pip install <file-name>.whl
