I am a little bit a newbie to the programming world. I am learning python on my own, so there are some gritty nitty things.
I am waiting to see the conda or pip install for pygplates as I would like to incorporate pygplates in my jupyter notebook that I would like to share with other people that may be less familiar with python (than me!).
I can use pygplates just fine on my local PC, however, now I would like to write my codes on Google Colab as it might be easier for me to share my works with collaborators. I tried to append the sys.path to the folder on my google drive (that is mounted onto google colab) that contains the extracted files from pygplates package that I downloaded from the https://www.gplates.org/download/.
As I am a Windows user, I automatically use the package for Windows. But, when I am thinking about it, the Google Colab might not run on the Windows OS.
So, my question is if there anyone has tried to use pygplates on Google Colab or not. If so, would you mind walking me through how to install and import pygplates into my Colab notebook.
