How To Install Mahotas

From source

You can get the released version using your favorite Python package manager:

easy_install mahotas


pip install mahotas

If you prefer, you can download the source from PyPI and run:

python install

You will need to have numpy and a C++ compiler.

Bleeding Edge (Development)

Development happens on github. You can get the development source there. Watch out that these versions are more likely to have problems.

On Windows

On Windows, Christoph Gohlke does an excelent job maintaining binary packages of mahotas (and several other packages).
