Is it necessary to install spaCy seperately?

I have Rasa installed. So I was wondering if I had to explicitly install spaCy to be able to use it in the pipeline or not? Can I somehow just fit the spaCyNLU, spaCy tokenizer into the pipeline, without installing it?

If installing is necessary, can someone please suggest a guide that teaches how to install it, provided that we have rasa installed.

You need to be able to use SpaCy in order to use it. Execute these commands:

pip install rasa[spacy]
python -m spacy download en_core_web_md

If you need to link en to en_core_web_md, the command will output what you need to do.
