Conda Package Manager

The first step is to make sure that you have the conda package manager installed. You can download and install either anaconda or miniconda from the Continuum downloads page. Make sure that you follow the full instructions and that the conda command line utility is on your PATH. This is the default option when installing conda.

Binary Package (For Users)

Binary distributions of the latest release for mac and linux (64-bit) using the conda package manager can be installed by running the command:

conda install -c conda-forge pyne=0.5.3

where VERSION should be replaced with the version number to be installed.

A windows 32-bit binary is also available on conda via the same command but it is highly experimental and likely broken. Conda binaries do not have moab/pytaps/mesh support (yet).

Create a Package (For Developer)

In a new shell, run the following:

conda install conda-build jinja2 nose setuptools pytables hdf5 scipy

on linux you may also need to run:

conda install patchelf

Then dowload the latest conda-recipes here

cd to the conda-recipes directory and run:

conda build pyne
conda install $(conda build --output pyne)
nuc_data_make

You should now be able to update the conda package that lives on binstar.
