Install Python

Sept. 2018

We only work with Python 3.x version (no 2.7 version)!

If you do not already have Python installed on your computer, I recommend that you use Spyder and/or Jupyter Notebook (= IPython Notebook) (no obligation). Below the instructions to install both via conda (tested on Ubuntu and Windows 10).

First: Anaconda vs Miniconda

You can either install Anaconda or miniconda. Have a look at conda user-guide to choose!

Install Anaconda (any OS)

If you have (a lot of) space to loose on your computer, just follow the instructions here to install Anaconda!

Spyder, IPython Notebook (= Jupyter) are installed (as well as many useless things).

OR Install Miniconda, Spyder and Jupyter

Miniconda will just add the conda package manager and Python.

Install miniconda:

Installation instructions (any OS) can be found here (choose "regular installation").

To install "packages" first open a "console" :


Open Anaconda Prompt (should be in start menu > Anaconda).


Open a terminal!

Install Spyder and or Jupyter Notebook:

From anaconda user-guide: Spyder and Jupyter, in your "console":
conda install -c anaconda spyder
conda install -c anaconda jupyter

Using console, Spyder or Jupyter
