Ambient is a header-only library (so just installing the sources is enough):
cmake . make install
Compilation of the target application against Ambient's include folder with C++11 enabled is generally sufficient. Otherwise be sure to check the compilation options: threading backend and MPI mode are compiler-specific by default (so the respective compiler knobs might be needed).
To enforce threading backend or MPI mode use the following knobs:
-DAMBIENT_THREADING [CILK, OPENMP or NONE] -DAMBIENT_MPI [MPI_DISABLE or the desired MPI threading level]
(Set AMBIENT_VERBOSE environment variable to see the resulting configuration).
