The install command can be used to install any FHIR package from the
package server. It will install the package on your local machine and
add a reference from your current folder to that package, by adding it
package.json file (also known as a package manifest). You can
provide just the package name, to get the latest.
> fhir install xyz.myprofiles
Or you can specify a specific version or range.
> fhir install xyz.myprofiles 2.3
By default a package is installed in the global package cache of your
machine. But you can specify to install it in the current folder with
> fhir install simplifier.core.stu3 --here
This will install the latest version of package `simplifier.core.stu3’ as a subfolder of your current folder. In most scenario’s you should not need this option.
Install a file¶
If you have a package file that is not on the package server, for
example you created it locally and want to test it, you cana install a
package file (.tgz) from your current folder into the global package
cache of your machine. For this you can use the
> fhir install thisproject.tgz --file
