"Direct CassIO" setup for running locally
You can skip this page if you are interested in Colab notebooks only.
These are the instructions for local setup of the Python environment for the "direct CassIO" examples. A prerequisite is the general setup for running locally.
Note that not many demos here will require access to an LLM provider (so you may safely ignore the LLM requirement and still run most of the notebooks provided here).
You should have a copy of this repository from the general local-run setup already.
Go to the
Create a Python 3.8+ virtual environment, activate it and install the required dependencies with:
pip install -r requirements_direct_cassio.txt
Make sure you are in
docs/frameworks/direct_cassio and the virtual environment is active.
Source the API Key configuration with
Now fire up Jupyter with:
and wait for a browser window to open with the notebooks in this directory, ready to run.
The notebooks provide a choice between using Cassandra and Astra DB. Keep in mind that, if on a Colab, only Astra DB is supported out of the box. Check the "Further reading" section for more information.
