Installing Copulas

Requirements

Copulas has been developed and tested on Python 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8

Also, although it is not strictly required, the usage of a virtualenv is highly recommended in order to avoid interfering with other software installed in the system where Copulas is run.

Install with pip

The easiest and recommended way to install Copulas is using pip:

pip install copulas

This will pull and install the latest stable release from PyPi.

Install with conda

Copulas can also be installed using conda:

conda install -c sdv-dev -c conda-forge copulas

This will pull and install the latest stable release from Anaconda.

Install from source

If you want to install Copulas from source you need to first clone the repository and then execute the make install command inside the stable branch. Note that this command works only on Unix based systems like GNU/Linux and macOS:

git clone https://github.com/sdv-dev/Copulas
cd Copulas
git checkout stable
make install

Install for development

If you intend to modify the source code or contribute to the project you will need to install it from the source using the make install-develop command. In this case, we recommend you to branch from master first:

git clone git@github.com:sdv-dev/Copulas
cd Copulas
git checkout master
git checkout -b <your-branch-name>
make install-develp
