h1. Install

h2. Windows


Get "Algorete":, a Python distribution with a package manager. Download the "mini" version, and reboot, so the PATH environment variable is updated everywhere in the system. Default install directory : C:\Loopy.

To get help about the package manager, type the following command in a *DOS prompt*, not a Git/bash shell :
@> apkg help

Install the required packages :
@> apkg install matplotlib numpy scipy pyside


The "PyQtGraph": has a bug (it won't find Python and the dialog is write protected). The workaround is to get the source code. The archive contains a "pyqtgraph" directory that contains,, etc. Copy this directory to C:\Loopy\Lib\site-packages. The PyQtGraph module can now be imported in Python.


Some classes of PyQtGraph require "PyOpenGL": Get the zip, extract and type :
@$ python install

Default install directory C:\Loopy\Lib\site-packages\OpenGL.
