pip install honeybee-ies


import pathlib
from honeybee.model import Model

path_to_hbjson = './tests/assets/sample_model_45.hbjson'
path_to_out_folder = pathlib.Path('./tests/assets/temp')
path_to_out_folder.mkdir(parents=True, exist_ok=True) 
model = Model.from_hbjson(path_to_hbjson)
# the to_gem method is added to model by honeybee-ies library
gem_file = model.to_gem(path_to_out_folder.as_posix(), name='sample_model_45')

You can also run the command from CLI
