fiscalyear has no dependencies, making it simple and easy to install. There are multiple ways to install the fiscalyear module.


The recommended way to install fiscalyear is with pip.

$ pip install fiscalyear

The fiscalyear module will now appear with your base Python installation.


If you work in an HPC environment, the Spack package manager can be used to install fiscalyear as well.

$ spack install py-fiscalyear
$ spack activate py-fiscalyear
$ module load python

The resulting module file will automatically add fiscalyear to your PYTHONPATH. See the Spack Documentation to get started.


If you’re up for it, you can also install fiscalyear from source. Simply clone the repository.

$ git clone

Now build the module.

$ python build

At this point, you can optionally run the unit tests to make sure everything is working properly. This requires pytest for unit testing.

$ python test

Finally, install the package to somewhere in your PYTHONPATH.

$ python install --prefix=/path/to/installation/prefix


If you want to vendor fiscalyear with your Python package, you can always download the source code. fiscalyear is composed of a single file, making it easy to drag-n-drop to your current directory and import.
