Meta package for the AiiDA lab python environment.

Project description

Build Status


The aiidalab metapackage sets up the python environment found on the AiiDA lab. Amongst others, this includes

  • aiida-core
  • a wide range of aiida plugins
  • jupyter
  • ...

The relevant jupyter notebook extensions are enabled automatically.

Note: This is the development version for AiiDA 1.0.


# install latest version from pypi
pip install aiidalab
# note: pip can *enable* nbextensions [1,2], but not install them
jupyter nbextension install --sys-prefix --py fileupload        

[1] See the jupyter-notebook documentation


# install latest version from github
pip install git+
jupyter nbextension install --sys-prefix --py fileupload        

Note: pip install -e . does not process the data_files and thus does not enable the jupyter extensions.

Updating requirements

Start by adjusting the Pipfile according to the latest releases. Then do:

pip install pipenv
pipenv lock # to create Pipfile.lock
pipenv lock --requirements > requirements.txt_stable # To extract the dependencies of the stable packages
pipenv lock --dev --requirements > requirements.txt_dev # To extract the dependencies of the development packages
cat requirements.txt_stable requirements.txt_dev | sort | uniq > requirements.txt

Note: We try to keep the number of explicit dependencies in the Pipfile to a minimum. Consider using pipdeptree to figure out the dependency tree and which dependencies are actually needed.
