  1. Installing packages one-by-one, for example tensorflow==2.10.0 (most common)

Installing Custom Dependencies

You may want to use dependencies that aren’t public on pip. For this use case, we recommend using the script. can be customized with anything that you’d apt-get install in a Docker container.

Select the option in the config section of the sandbox.
