Is there any way to import groups from the GAP small group library into Sage notebook?

I've tried importing the library using the terminal, but I haven't been able to. When I run

sage -i database_gap

while running sage in the terminal, I get an invalid syntax error.

I am running Mac OS X 10.12.5

When I run sage -i database_gap in the notebook, I get the following error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "", line 10, in <module>
    exec compile(u'open("","w").write("# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-\\n" + _support_.preparse_worksheet_cell(base64.b64decode("c2FnZSAtaSBkYXRhYmFzZV9nYXA="),globals())+"\\n"); execfile(os.path.abspath(""))
  File "", line 1, in <module>

    sage -i database_gap

Neither of these is syntax for Sage; they are syntax for the command line before you start Sage.

Once upon a time one could do install_package(package='database_gap') as in this question, but apparently this functionality has now been removed after deprecation - see the documentation. So you will have to use the command line facility, or possibly the "install package" menu item if you are using the Sage app bundle.
