We distribute binary manylinux2014 for Linux, which requires pip >= 19.3. To install python-casacore from a binary wheel run:
$ pip install python-casacore
Debian & Ubuntu
python-casacore is now part of Debian and Ubuntu and can be installed using apt:
$ sudo apt-get install python-casacore
install these requirements:
On ubuntu you can install these with:
$ apt-get install casacore-dev python-numpy \ python-setuptools libboost-python-dev libcfitsio3-dev wcslib-dev
compile and install:
$ pip install --no-binary python-casacore python-casacore
or if you are installing from the source repository:
$ python ./setup.py install
If the compilation fails you might need to help the compiler find the paths to the boost and casacore libraries and headers. You can control this with the CFLAGS environment variable. For example on OS X when using homebrew and clang you need to do something like this:
CFLAGS="-std=c++11 \ -I/usr/local/Cellar/boost/1.68.0/include/ \ -I/usr/local/include/ \ -L/usr/local/Cellar/boost/1.68.0/lib \ -L/usr/local/lib/" \ pip install python-casacore
if you have any problems, suggestions or questions please open an issue on the python-casacore github issue tracker.
