OpenAlea Installation

The recommended way to install OpenAlea is to create a new conda environment.

First, create an environment named openalea:

Launch a console or a terminal (See Anaconda Prompt in Start menu on windows). In this console, to install a given openalea package <package_name> with its dependencies, execute this:

conda create -n openalea -c openalea3 -c conda-forge openalea.<*package_name*>

Here is an example if you want only PlantGL, lpy, MTG and Caribu:

conda create -n openalea -c openalea3 -c conda-forge openalea.plantgl openalea.lpy openalea.mtg alinea.caribu

Activate the openalea environment:

conda activate openalea

In this environment, you may also want to install other Scientific Python packages:

conda install notebook matplotlib pandas

In the documentation of each package, a installation procedure is described.
