This is the MIT version of the PyMca XRF Toolkit. Please read the LICENSE file for details.
Ready-to-use packages are available for the most common platforms.
PyMca frozen binaries for MacOS and Windows can be obtained from Sourceforge
Unofficial Debian packages are also available, but you should check if official pacakges are available for your distribution.
Please continue reading if you want to use PyMca with your existing Python installation.
The simplest solution is to use
pip install PyMca5
You can add the usual
--user qualifier to install only for your
local user rather than system-wide:
pip install PyMca5 --user
If you want to build from the source distribution or from a git repository checkout, you may want to have Cython installed on your system.
Examples of source installation
In your default system-wide python installation, run one or the other of the two (not both) commands below (may require root/administrator access):
# Run one of the following (not both); pip is preferred python setup.py install # use python setuptools pip install . # use the pip package manager
Or, to install just in your local user account:
# Run one of the following (not both); pip is preferred python setup.py install --user # use python setuptool pip install . --user # use the pip package manager
You will need the following dependencies installed:
If you want to use the graphical interface provided, you will need a running python installation with one of the following combinations:
matplotlib(PyMca license will be GPL unless you have a commercial PyQt5 license)
matplotlib(PyMca license will be MIT because PySide2 is LGPL)
If you want to embed
PyMca in your own graphical applications, I
recommend you to use the
module. It is very easy to embed.
To run the tests after installation run:
python -m PyMca5.tests.TestAll
- Use the
fisxlibrary for all Physics calculations and not just for corrections.
- Compound fitting.
