Stable release

To install pydarshan, run this command in your terminal:

$ pip install pydarshan

This is the preferred method to install pydarshan, as it will always install the most recent stable release. If you don’t have pip installed, this Python installation guide can guide you through the process.

Pydarshan assumes that a recent ‘darshan-utils’ is installed as a shared library. If darshan-util is not installed consult with the darshan documentation or consider using Spack to install:

spack install darshan-util

From sources

The sources for pydarshan can be downloaded from the Github repo.

$ python install
