Install Anaconda python¶
irfpy is optimally designed under Anaconda Python package
running on MacOSX or Linux.
irfpy works with any python packages, but
irfpy development team cannot support installation
and setup to such packages (as long as Anaconda Python is working).
irfpy development team does not have resources
for the full support of Windows.
The development team highly appreciates any feedback (bug reports) under Windows Anaconda systeam as well.
Windows users who just want to use
VirtualBox (or equivalent) to install Linux system.
Installation is simple enough using pip, the python package manager.
% pip install --find-links=https://irfpy.irf.se/sdist irfpy.util
irfpy is updating as frequently as possible, you may sometimes
want to update the package.
But don’t worry, it is enough simple. Add “-U” in the end of the
% pip install --find-links=https://irfpy.irf.se/sdist irfpy.util -U
Presently it is a test installation scheme.
% pip install -r requirements.txt
To update the
% pip install -r requirements.txt -U
Let’s see if the installation works correctly.
Open a terminal
Then start ipython.
If it is successful, a prompt
In : is seen.
Try importing several important packages, as seen examples below.
import numpy as np # Numpy
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # Matplotlib
import irfpy.util # irfpy.util
If fails, the corresponding package is not installed correctly.
