Installation from source

Installing from source requires you to have installed the Python development headers and a working C/C++ compiler. Under Debian-based operating systems, which include Ubuntu, you can install all these requirements by issuing:

sudo apt-get install build-essential python3-dev python3-setuptools \
                     python3-numpy

Before attempting a command such as python setup.py install you will need to run Cython to generate the relevant C files:

make cython
