If you just want to install bali-phy, please visit the release page. If you want to compile BAli-phy from source, the quick start instructions are below.
You will need a C++ compiler that understands C++20.
- gcc 10 (or higher) works
- clang 13 (or higher) works
- XCode 14 (or higher) works
On Ubuntu, you can use apt-get:
sudo apt-get install g++ libcairo2-dev meson libboost-all-dev
On Mac (or Linux, actually) you can use homebrew:
brew install cairo meson boost pkg-config
On miniconda, you can use:
conda create -n devel -c conda-forge --strict-channel-priority conda activate devel conda install meson gxx boost-cpp cmake pkg-config cairo export BOOST_ROOT=$CONDA_PREFIX
The meson version needs to be at least 1.1. If your distribution provides a version of meson that is less than 1.1, then you may need to install meson through the python package manager "pip" or "pip3":
pip3 -V PATH=$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH pip3 install --user meson ninja
This will build the latest unreleased beta version of BAli-Phy, which fixes some memory issues in 3.6. There are some changes to the model language. Check the NEWS file for the details.
git clone https://github.com/bredelings/BAli-Phy.git cd BAli-Phy meson setup build --prefix=$HOME/Applications/bali-phy ninja -C build install ninja -C build test
