I’ve set up some nightly binary builds of yt that are installable via Anaconda Python:
These build a binary package of yt from whatever the tip of the main repository is every night. I’m still working the kinks out of scheduling the builds, but there should be very recent versions of yt up there for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X (all 64-bit only).
I’d like folks to test these out at their leisure to see how they hold up under different platforms. If you don’t want to mess up your current Anaconda/yt setup, you can test it out in a separate Anaconda environment on the same machine. To set up a new conda environment, start with Step 1 below. If you’re ok with installing it in the default environment, you can skip to Step 2.
You can setup a new Anaconda Python environment, completely separate from the default one, using “conda create”, e.g.:
conda create -n test_yt python=2.7 numpy=1.8
which will set up a completely new conda environment which can be activated at will. You should see some instructions like this:
# To activate this environment, use:
# $ source activate test_yt
# To deactivate this environment, use:
# $ source deactivate
After you activate this environment, the prompt will indicate that you are in this new environment (in this example “yt_test”), and anything you do will NOT touch your default install at all.
Install the yt nightly using:
conda install -c https://conda.binstar.org/jzuhone yt==dev
And you’re done! Let me know what happens!
