anaconda (recommended)

The easiest way to install scikit-rf is to first install anaconda, a binary package manager for python modules. Once anaconda is setup you can install scikit-rf by entering the following into a terminal

conda install -c conda-forge  scikit-rf


If you dont want to install anaconda (really, why not?), you can use pip

pip install scikit-rf


The bleeding-edge development version of scikit-rf may be installed from our github page. You can use git directly, or download a zipfile.

git clone
cd scikit-rf
python install

Other Optional Modules

Some features of scikit-rf wont be available until you install additional modules. You can install these using conda or pip.
