Python 2.7, 3.2 or later
Windows: You need to use 32-bit Python on Windows to be able to install NumPy and ProDy.
Python 2.6 and 3.1 can be used to install and run ProDy. However, note that ProDy tests are performed using Python 2.7 and 3.2, so these are the recommended versions.
NumPy 1.5+ (for Windows, select an installer built using a suitable version of NumPy)
When compiling from source, on Linux for example, you will need a C compiler (e.g. gcc) and Python developer libraries (i.e. python.h). If you don’t have Python developer libraries installed on your machine, use your package manager to install python-dev package.
If you have Easy Install installed, type the following:
easy_install -U ProDy
If you don’t have Easy Install, please download an installation file and follow the instructions.
After installing the required packages, you will need to do one of the following:
Download ProDy-x.y.z.tar.gz. Extract tarball contents and run setup.py as follows:
$ tar -xzf ProDy-x.y.z.tar.gz $ cd ProDy-x.y.z $ python setup.py build $ python setup.py install
If you need root access for installation, try sudo python setup.py install. If you don’t have root access, please consult alternate and custom installation schemes in Installing Python Modules.
For installing ProDy, please follow the Linux installation instructions.
Remove previously installed ProDy release from Uninstall a program in Control Panel.
Download ProDy-0.x.y.win32-py2.z.exe and run to install ProDy.
