As of version 0.5.2, ORBIT is now pip installable with
pip install orbit-nrel.
The steps below are for more advanced users that would like to modify and and contribute to ORBIT.
- A couple of notes before you get started:
- It is assumed that you will be using the terminal on MacOS/Linux or the Anaconda Prompt on Windows. The instructions refer to both as the "terminal", and unless otherwise noted the commands will be the same.
- To verify git is installed, run
git --versionin the terminal. If an error occurs, install git using these directions.
- The listed installation process is intended to be the easiest for any OS to get started. An alternative setup that doesn't rely on Anaconda for setting up an environment can be followed here.
From the terminal, install pip by running:
conda install -c anaconda pip
Next, create a new environment for the project with the following.
conda create -n <environment_name> python=3.7 --no-default-packages
To activate/deactivate the environment, use the following commands.
conda activate <environment_name> conda deactivate <environment_name>
Clone the repository:
git clone https://github.com/WISDEM/ORBIT.git
Navigate to the top level of the repository (
<path-to-ORBIT>/ORBIT/) and install ORBIT as an editable package with following command.
# Note the "." at the end pip install -e . # OR if you are you going to be contributing to the code or building documentation pip install -e '.[dev]'
(Development only) Install the pre-commit hooks to autoformat code and check that tests pass.
- Python 3.7+
- OpenMDAO (>=3.2)
