Installation

cpprb requires following softwares before installation.

  • C++17 compiler (for installation from source)
  • Python 3
  • pip

Additionally, here are user’s good feedbacks for installation at Ubuntu. (Thanks!)

The following command installs cpprb together with other dependencies.

pip install cpprb

Depending on your environment, you might need sudo or --user flag for installation.

On supported platflorms (Linux x86-64, Windows amd64, and macOS x8664), binary packages hosted on PyPI can be used, so that you don’t need C++ compiler. On the other platforms, such as 32bit or arm-architectured Linux and Windows, you cannot install from binary, and you need to compile by yourself. Please be patient, we plan to support wider platforms in future.

If you have any troubles to install from binary, you can fall back to source installation by passing --no-binary option to the above pip command. (In order to avoid NumPy source installation, it is better to install NumPy beforehand.)

pip install numpy
pip install --no-binary cpprb

2 Install from source code

First, download source code manually or clone the repository;

git clone https://gitlab.com/ymd_h/cpprb.git

Then you can install in the same way;

cd cpprb
pip install .

For this installation, you need to convert extended Python (.pyx) to C++ (.cpp) during installation, it takes longer time than installation from PyPI.
