This section covers the basics of how to download and install TomoPy.
TomoPy is tested, built, and distributed for python 2.7 3.5 3.6 on Linux/macOS and python 3.5 3.6 on Windows 10.
If you only want to run TomoPy, not develop it, then you should install through a package manager. Conda, our supported package manager, can install TomoPy and its dependencies for you.
First, you must have Conda installed, then open a terminal or a command prompt window and run:
$ conda install -c conda-forge tomopy
This will install TomoPy and all the dependencies from the conda-forge channel.
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. Download the source to your local computer using git by opening a terminal and running:
$ git clone https://github.com/tomopy/tomopy.git
in the folder where you want the source code. This will create a folder called tomopy which contains a copy of the source code.
You will need to install all the dependencies listed in
meta.yaml files. For example, requirements can be
installed using Conda by running:
$ conda install --file requirements.txt
After navigating to inside the tomopy directory, you can install TomoPy by building/compiling the shared libraries and running the install script:
$ python build.py $ pip install .
