We recommend using a separate python environment.

conda create -n yourenv python=3.5
activate yourenv [Windows] or source activate yourenv [Linux]

Install package dependencies:

conda install matplotlib jupyter scipy numpy pandas seaborn pytest coverage

For Shapely, try:

pip install shapely

If that fails, in Windows, download the most recent wheel file here. Once downloaded, install with wheel.

pip install yourshapelyinstall.whl


Clone nept from Github and use a developer installation:

git clone
cd nept
python develop



Check GitHub Pages for the latest version of the nept documentation.


Ensure you have sphinx, numpydic, and mock:

conda install ghp-import sphinx numpydoc sphinx_rtd_theme

Install nbsphinx so notebooks in the documentations can be executed:

pip install nbsphinx --user

Build the latest version of the documentation using in the nept directory prior to pushing it to Github:
