  • Create and activate the conda environment:
git clone
cd ShowerModel
conda env create -f environment.yml
conda activate showermodel
  • To update the environment (e.g. when dependencies get updated), use:
conda env update -n showermodel -f environment.yml

To install ShowerModel, run the following command from the ShowerModel root directory:

pip install -e .

Alternatively, you can also install ShowerModel (using conda-build) by running the following command from the ShowerModel root directory:

conda develop .

Test your installation by running any of the notebooks in this repository. Otherwise open an Issue with your error.
