poliastro requires the following Python packages:
- Astropy (for physical units handling and geometrical transforms)
- matplotlib (for plotting)
It is usually tested on Linux on Python 2.7 and Python 3.3 (single codebase). A Fortran compiler is needed to build the extensions: poliastro is usually built with gfortran.
There is no reason it shouldn’t work under Windows or Mac OS X with properly configured tools (not tested).
To install poliastro just use pip:
$ pip install numpy astropy matplotlib poliastro
To install poliastro from source, just clone the source:
$ clone https://github.com/Pybonacci/poliastro.git $ cd poliastro/ $ python setup.py install
