Failed install robotframework-datadriver XLS

Hi all,
I work with:

  • MAC OS
  • PyCharm 2021.2 (Community Edition)
  • Python 3.9

I tried to install robotframework-datadriver to work with XLSX file by both 2 command lines:

  1. pip3 install -U robotframework-datadriver[XLS]
    [Return error]: zsh: no matches found: robotframework-datadriver[XLS]

  2. pip3 install --upgrade robotframework-datadriver XLS
    [Return error]:

You need a space between the package and the [package index options]. As in

pip3 install robotframework-datadriver [XLS]

This still may produce the error seen on the second (which is trying to install data driver plus another package called XLS - not what you are wanting to do as far as I can tell).

On MacOS and ZSH, you have to call

pip install robotframework-datadriver\[XLS]

Because square brackets do have a meaning in ZSH you have to escape them.
