The package can be either installed via pip or if you solely want to work with veranda or contribute, we recommend to install it as a conda environment.


To install veranda via pip in your own environment, use:

pip install veranda


The packages also comes along a conda environments: conda_environment.yml. This is especially recommended if you want to contribute to the project. The following script will install miniconda and setup the environment on a UNIX like system. Miniconda will be installed into $HOME/miniconda.

wget -O
bash -b -p $HOME/miniconda
export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH"
conda env create -f conda_environment.yml
source activate veranda

This script adds $HOME/miniconda/bin temporarily to the PATH to do this permanently add export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH" to your .bashrc or .zshrc.

For Windows, use the following setup:

  • Download the latest miniconda 3 installer for Windows

  • Click on .exe file and complete the installation.

  • Add the folder condabin folder to your environment variable PATH. You can find the condabin folder usually under: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Continuum\miniconda3\condabin

  • Finally, you can set up the conda environment via:

    conda env create -f conda_environment.yml
    source activate veranda

After that you should be able to run

python test

to run the test suite.
