Compiling latest documentation
To compile the latest version of the documentation from source, please check docs/source/index.rst.
XActor depends on mpi4py which requires a MPI implementation and compiler tools be installed on the system.
Installing MPICH and mpi4py inside a conda environment
To create a new virtual environment with conda, have Anaconda/Miniconda setup on your system. Installation instructions for Anaconda can be found here. After installation of Anaconda/Miniconda execute the following commands:
$ conda create -n xactor -c conda-forge python=3 mpich mpi4py
The above command creates a new conda environment called xactor with python, mpich and mpi4py installed.
The following commands assume you are inside the above conda environment.
