apollon can be installed on GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows. Installation process is similar on each of these plaforms. Note, however, that apollon contains CPython extension modules, which have to be compiled locally for GNU/Linux and Windows users. If you work on those platforms, please make shure that there is a C compiler set up on your machine; otherwise the installation will fail. In the case of macOS, a precompiled wheel is provided for the latest version only.

Install using pip

The Python packager manager can automatically download and install apollon from Pypi. Simply run the following command from your terminal:

python3 -m pip install apollon

Install from source

You can also install and compile apollon directly from its sources in three steps:

  • Download the apollon source code

  • Open a terminal and navigate to the apollon root directory

  • Install and compile with the following command

python3 -m pip install .
