Install directions

This section covers the basics of how to download and install TomoPy.

Updating the installation

TomoPy is an active project, so we suggest you update your installation frequently. To update the installation run:

conda update -c conda-forge tomopy

For some more information about using Conda, please refer to the docs.

Installing from source

Sometimes an adventurous user may want to get the source code, which is always more up-to-date than the one provided by Conda (with more bugs of course!).

For this you need to get the source from the TomoPy repository on GitHub. You can get it to your local computer by opening a terminal and running:

git clone

Then in a terminal you need to run:

python install

Keep in mind that you may need to install all dependencies listed in requirements.txt or meta.yaml files manually or as you please.

Importing TomoPy

When importing, it is best to import TomoPy before importing numpy. See this thread for details.
