To use the DEM on your PC, you need to have the following tools installed:

  • Python 3.10+
  • Docker Engine 24.0+


Currently only the Linux operating system and the Docker Container Engine is supported.


dem is available in the PyPI repository. Install it with:

pip install axem-dem

And that's it! Now you should be able to use the dem command.


The package name is axem-dem, but the command is dem.

Optional: Use the source code

The dem is open source, so you can use it as a python module. To do this, you need to add the -m flag to your command.

For example:

python -m dem list --local --env

We use poetry to manage dependencies. To ensure that you use the correct versions of the required modules, you should enter the preconfigured virtual environment.

First install the environment with required dependencies:

poetry install

Enter the virtual environment:

poetry shell
