exoplanet requires Python 3.6 and later.

Using pip

exoplanet can also be installed using pip:

python -m pip install -U exoplanet

Using conda

exoplanet can be installed using conda from conda-forge:

conda install -c conda-forge exoplanet

From Source

The source code for exoplanet can be downloaded and installed from GitHub by running

git clone --recursive
cd exoplanet
python -m pip install -e .

Note: if you clone the repo without the --recursive flag, you will need to run

git submodule init
git submodule update

Notes about running on Windows

Running exoplanet on Windows can be a little tricky because of the dependence on runtime compilation, but it has been used on Windows successfully. The following conda installation steps seem to work:

conda create --name exoplanetTest python pip
conda install --name exoplanetTest numpy scipy mkl-service libpython m2w64-toolchain astropy
python -m pip install -e ".[test]"


To run the unit tests, install the development dependencies using pip:

python -m pip install ".[test]"

and then execute:

python -m pytest -v tests

All of the tests should (of course) pass. If any of the tests don’t pass and if you can’t sort out why, open an issue on GitHub.
