I want to use the inbuilt functionality of the processing tools of QGIS in an independent (means separate Python script). But I'm unable to install the relative package outside of QGIS.

How can I install processing tools of QGIS using pip?

  • I am 99.99% sure this is not possible as the Processing tools are tightly dependent on the QGIS core and you cannot use them if you do not have the whole QGIS package installed. Feb 9, 2022 at 12:17
  • Is it possible to install QGIS (as a package) using pip?

  • No, that is not possible. Feb 10, 2022 at 9:28
  • This is is a possible work around. docs.qgis.org/3.22/en/docs/user_manual/processing/intro.html

You can install QGIS by Conda Environment with conda-forge channel with command:

conda install qgis --channel conda-forge

After install in a conda environment, it's possible create a standalone PyQGIS with this env.
