Installation

Requirements

The NetPyNE package requires Python 2.7 (www.python.org).

Additionally, running parallelized simulations of networks requires the NEURON simulator with python and MPI support. See NEURON’s installation instructions and documentation

Note: It is possible to use the NetPyNE package without NEURON, to convert model specifications into Python-based instantiated networks (hierarchical data structure of objects, dicts and lists), and export into different formats.

Install via pip

To install the the package run pip install netpyne (Linux or Mac OS) or python -m pip install netpyne (Windows)

To upgrade to a new version run pip install netpyne -U (Linux or Mac OS) or python -m pip install -U pip (Windows)
