ChemSpiPy supports Python versions 2.7 and 3.5+.
Option 1: Use conda (recommended)¶
The easiest and recommended way to install is using conda. Anaconda Python is a self-contained Python environment that is particularly useful for scientific applications. If you don’t already have it, start by installing Miniconda, which includes a complete Python distribution and the conda package manager. Choose the Python 3 version, unless you have a particular reason why you must use Python 2.
To install ChemSpiPy, at the command line, run:
conda config --add channels conda-forge conda install chemspipy
This will add the conda-forge channel to your conda config, then install ChemSpiPy and all its dependencies into your conda environment.
Option 2: Use pip¶
An alternative method is to install using pip:
pip install chemspipy
This will download the latest version of ChemSpiPy, and place it in your site-packages folder so it is automatically available to all your python scripts. It should also ensure that the dependencies six and requests are installed.
If you don’t already have pip installed, you can install it using get-pip.py:
curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py python get-pip.py
Option 3: Download the Latest Release¶
Alternatively, download the latest release manually and install yourself:
tar -xzvf ChemSpiPy-2.0.0.tar.gz cd ChemSpiPy-2.0.0 python setup.py install
The setup.py command will install ChemSpiPy in your site-packages folder so it is automatically available to all your python scripts.
Option 4: Clone the Repository¶
The latest development version of ChemSpiPy is always available on GitHub. This version is not guaranteed to be stable, but may include new features that have not yet been released. Simply clone the repository and install as usual:
git clone https://github.com/mcs07/ChemSpiPy.git cd ChemSpiPy python setup.py install
