This is not a qgis plugin rather a python package. You will have to un-zip the .rar file to expose the folder/python binding files. You will either have to register the package or use the sys module to append it to your python library so you can use its methods within either the python console or build your own plugin and call its methods.
# sys append example import sys sys.path.append('C:/Temp/path/to/pythonPackageFolder') import pythonPackageFolder
There is a confusion among QGIS, ArcGIS (or GRASS GIS, or..) users.
These programs use Python for scripting but they are not Python.
- For example, QGIS uses Python in the console with the Python module
qgisand plugins written in Python.
- But Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language (nothing to do with QGIS, ArcGIS, GRASS GIS, ...)
If you want to install a Python package/library/module (openpyxl for example), you install it with Python and not with QGIS and I think it is not the purpose of GIS Stack Exchange to explain it.
