To install Sympl, run this command in your terminal:
$ pip install sympl
This is the preferred method to install Sympl, as it will always install the most recent release.
The sources for Sympl can be downloaded from the Github repo.
You can either clone the public repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/mcgibbon/sympl
Or download the tarball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/mcgibbon/sympl/tarball/master
Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it with:
$ python setup.py install
If you are looking to modify the code, you can install it with:
$ python setup.py develop
This configures the package so that Python points to the current directory instead of copying files. Then when you make modifications to the source code in that directory, they are automatically used by any new Python sessions.
