Install a module

You can install modules from nf-core/modules in your pipeline using nf-core modules install. A module installed this way will be installed to the ./modules/nf-core/modules directory.

nf-core modules install abacas

You can pass the module name as an optional argument to nf-core modules install instead of using the cli prompt, eg: nf-core modules install fastqc. You can specify a pipeline directory other than the current working directory by using the --dir <pipeline dir>.

There are three additional flags that you can use when installing a module:

  • --force: Overwrite a previously installed version of the module.
  • --prompt: Select the module version using a cli prompt.
  • --sha <commit_sha>: Install the module at a specific commit.
