Package Support
Working with packages is an important part of using Python in Hex.

Using a pre-installed package

Hex has a number of popular packages pre-installed. You can see the list of highlighted, pre-installed packages here or by searching through the Packages tab in the left-hand bar.

Installing new packages through pip

You can add new packages to a project using pip, much as you would in a local environment.
Create a new cell, and use a ! to trigger a terminal command:
!pip3 install astropy
Because Projects are run top-to-bottom with a new kernel every time a user visits your App, packages installed with !pip install have to be reinstalled every time your project runs.
