Installing current development version of ANUGA research code on Windows using Gohlke Binaries
anuga is developed on Linux (Ubuntu) and hence the installation on Linux (Ubuntu) is more streamlined. But it is possible to install on windows. First you need to install the required python environment, then download the anuga source and then compile and test. The most time consuming part of the process is getting the python environment setup.
We use python as our programming environment together with a number of standard python packages such as numpy, scipy, matplotlib, netcdf4, gdal, nose. One way to install all the required packages is to use the standard python distribution an then install pre-compiled binaries from http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs.
Download and run the Python 2.7 installer. (allow python.exe to be added to the path in the installation options)
Be sure to choose the win32 python 2.7 version. This is the version for which we are developing.
At the moment anuga has memory problems with win64 so avoid that for the time being. You are most welcome to help track down the problems and provide a bug fix :-).
Anuga python package dependencies
We need to download a number of pre-compiled python packages.
Download the following whl files:
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#numpy download numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#scipy download scipy‑0.15.1‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#netcdf4 download netCDF4‑1.1.7‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#matplotlib download matplotlib‑1.4.3‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#gdal download GDAL‑1.11.2‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl
From http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#nose download nose‑1.3.4‑py2‑none‑any.whl
From the directory where you have downloaded the whl files. At the cmd line
pip install numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl pip install scipy‑0.15.1‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl pip install netCDF4‑1.1.7‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl pip install matplotlib‑1.4.3‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl pip install GDAL‑1.11.2‑cp27‑none‑win32.whl pip install nose‑1.3.4‑py2‑none‑any.whl
We need a gcc compiler with openmp support to install anuga.
We suggest that you download and install the version of MinGW provided by TDM-GCC. Mark the openmp and gfortran options in the "Choose Components" part of the installation.
We need to force the python installation scripts to use this compiler. Add a configuration file named pydistutils.cfg to your home directory C:\Users\yourName with the contents
Installing ANUGA via pip
You should now have all the dependencies installed. You should fire up a new cmd.exe and install anuga
You can just install the anuga library using pip or download the full repo with example code and manual using git.
If just want the latest released version of the package then use pip via
pip install anuga
If the install is successful, test the install via
python -c "import anuga; anuga.test()"
Install current development version
Our preferred method of obtaining the most current version of anuga is to use git (Though you can use subverson or download a zipped file).
Download and run the windows git installer
Clone anuga via git
We need to obtain (clone) the anuga source code.
To obtain the anuga repo from github use git clone i.e. from a new cmd line run the command
git clone https://github.com/GeoscienceAustralia/anuga_core.git
Build and Install ANUGA
You should now have an anuga_core directory.
Now go to the directory anuga_core and build and install anuga. Change to the anuga_core directory and run
python setup.py install
Hopefully no errors.
Run Unit tests
From the anuga_core directory run the unit tests via:
Hopefully all the unit tests pass. As this is bleeding edge there are sometimes a small number of failures as this is a work in progress. Have a look at the examples in the directory anuga_core/examples (along with the user manual in anuga_core/doc) to see how to use anuga.
From time to time you should update your version of anuga. This is fairly easy if you used subversion or git to obtain the source. You will then just need to pull (with git) or update (with subversion).
I.e. if using git fire up cmd.exe, change into the anuga_core directory and run
Then re-install the latest version of the code and check the unit tests via
python setup.py install python runtests.py
