Quick Start Guide

Obtaining NodePy

It is possible to install NodePy via pip, but the pip version is often outdated and the development version is recommended instead. The current development version of NodePy can be obtained via Git:

git clone git://github.com/ketch/nodepy.git

Installing NodePy

After downloading, simply add the directory containing the nodepy directory to your Python path. For instance, if your nodepy directory is /user/home/python/nodepy, the appropriate bash command is:

$ export PYTHONPATH=/user/home/python/

You will probably want to add this command to your .bash_profile file to avoid retyping it.

NodePy Documentation

NodePy documentation can be found at http://numerics.kaust.edu.sa/nodepy

The documentation is also included in the nodepy/doc directory, and can be built from your local install, if you have Sphinx.


NodePy comes with some canned examples that can be run to confirm your installation and to demonstrate capabilities of NodePy. These can be found in the directory nodepy/examples. Additional examples can be found in the User Guide .
