Simple Install

These are our most straightforward Vespa install instructions.

You'll need to use the command line for most of these instructions. If possible, we suggest that you copy and paste the commands in this guide to reduce the possibility of typos.

Step 1 - Install Python

Vespa uses 64-bit Python 2.7. We recommend using an automated Python distribution called Miniconda. These 'Simple Install' instructions assume that you used Miniconda to install 64-bit Python as described below.

Install the 64-bit Python 2.7 for your system from here:

Step 2 - Check Your Python

Download this helper script and run it with this command --

python 1

It will tell you whether or not Vespa is compatible with your Python installation.

Step 3 - Install Vespa's Dependencies, Round 1

OS X users, run this command first --

conda install -c wxpython

Next, Everyone should run this command --

conda install numpy scipy matplotlib wxPython

Then run this command --

pip install packaging pygamma pydicom==0.9.9 hlsvdpro vespa-suite

Step 4 - Install Vespa's Dependencies, Round 2

If you use Windows, run this command --

pip install pywavelets==0.3.0

If you use OS X or Linux, run this command --

conda install -c pywavelets=0.3.0

Linux users, also use your package manager to install the FFTW3 runtime library. Look for it under a name like libfftw3 or just fftw.

Step 5 - Finish the Vespa Install

Run this command --

python -m vespa.check_dependencies

If that goes OK, run this command --

python -m vespa.create_shortcuts

You're Done!
