Installation for Users
ctapipe and its dependencies may be installed using the Anaconda or Miniconda package system. We recommend creating a conda virtual environment first, to isolate the installed version and dependencies from your master environment (this is optional).
The following command will set up a conda virtual environment, add the necessary package channels, and install ctapipe specified version and its dependencies:
CTAPIPE_VER=0.11.0 wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cta-observatory/ctapipe/v$CTAPIPE_VER/environment.yml conda env create -n cta -f environment.yml conda activate cta conda install -c conda-forge ctapipe=$CTAPIPE_VER
Note: To prevent packages you installed with pip install –user from taking precedence over the conda environment, run:
conda env config vars set PYTHONNOUSERSITE=1 -n cta
Note: this environment contains many useful packages that are not strictly requirements of ctapipe. To get only ctapipe and its direct dependencies, just do conda install -c conda-forge ctapipe[=<version>] in an environment of your choice.
Note: If you encounter long Solving environment times with conda, try using mamba (https://github.com/mamba-org/mamba) instead.
The file environment.yml can be found in this repo. Note this is pre-alpha software and is not yet stable enough for end-users (expect large API changes until the first stable 1.0 release).
Developers should follow the development install instructions found in the documentation.
