h1. Install

Required software :

* "Numpy": : array manipulation.
* "Scipy": : scientific library.
* "PySide": : "Qt": bindings for Python.
* "PyQtGraph": : scientific sraphics and GUI library for Python.
* "PyOpenGL": : Python OpenGL binding. Some classes of PyQtGraph require PyOpenGL.
* The source code of the project, from the "repository":

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 installer 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.


Get the zip, extract and type :

@$ python install

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

h2. Linux Ubuntu


On Linux, Python is installed by default. Install Python packages :

@# apt-get install python-matplotlib python-numpy python-scipy python-pyside


Download the .deb file linked at the top of the "page": Then install the package :

@# # dpkg -i python-pyqtgraph_xx.xx.xx-x_all.deb


Install Python's package manager :

@# apt-get

install python-pip

Install PyOpenGL :

@$ pip install PyOpenGL PyOpenGL_accelerate


h2. Mac OS X


On OS X, Python is installed by default.
