PATH environment variable


I am trying to use a python package for image manipulation (Graphviz), but the pip installation doesn’t install everything necessary. The error I get is : FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] “dot” not found in path.

Searching online the solution in Ubuntu systems is to do apt install, which I believe is not possible in render. It also seem unfeasible to create a environment variable PATH. Any suggestion on how to proceed?

thank you

Hi there,

If you need to install additional OS-level dependencies, you’ll need to deploy a Docker container.

You’re also welcome to submit a feature request to have this installed in our Native Environments at

We rely heavily on customer feedback as a part of our planning and product roadmap process, so capturing interest on the feature request page is very helpful.
