Installing the Continual Client


One of the main ways to interact with Continual is via the continual client in our Python SDK or CLI. Users can install the Continual client by executing the following.

pip install continual

You can also upgrade with

pip install --upgrade continual


If you do not already have pip installed, please refer to the installation instructions.

Logging In

Once installed, users can authenticate to Continual via:

continual login

This will prompt for your user name and password. Input the credentials created while registering an account.

For users who are using a private cloud installation, you can set Continual to work with your installation via:

continual login --endpoint <endpoint_address>

CLI configuration

At any time, users can view how their Continual client is configured via:

continual config

When logging in, Continual will ask you which project to make your default project. This allows you to perform actions without specifying the project (such as continual push). You can modify your default project at any time with the following:

continual config set-project <my_project>

Additionally, you can specify the project as a flag when performing actions in the system:

continual push --project <my_project> <my_featureset>.yaml

Having a default project is purely for convenience and automated processes may wish to explicitly pass in the project with every command.

Once users are authenticated they will be able to use the CLI as needed. Refer to the reference manual for more information.
