Installation

This set of instructions is intended for 64-bit Linux and MacOS computers.

  1. Make sure your system has the basics to build software.

    On Debian derivatives (Ubuntu and many more), installing build-essential should do the trick.

    Everywhere else, just making sure you have the g++ package should be enough.

  2. Installing miniforge for Python 3 on your respective system.

  3. export CONDA=/WHERE/YOU/INSTALLED/miniforge3

    If you accepted the default location, this should work:

    export CONDA=$HOME/miniforge3

  4. $CONDA/bin/conda create -n myenvname

  5. source $CONDA/bin/activate myenvname

  6. conda config --add channels conda-forge

  7. conda install git pip pocl islpy pyopencl

  8. Type the following command:

    hash -r; for i in loopy pytato arraycontext; do python -m pip install --editable "git+https://github.com/inducer/$i.git#egg=$i"; done
    

Note

In each case, you may leave out the --editable flag if you would not like a checkout of the source code.

Next time you want to use arraycontext, just run the following command:

source /WHERE/YOU/INSTALLED/miniforge3/bin/activate myenvname

You may also like to add this to a startup file (like $HOME/.bashrc) or create an alias for it.

After this, you should be able to run the tests or examples.
