We recommend installing The Joker into a new Anaconda environment.


You can install the latest release of The Joker using pip:

pip install thejoker

Or, to install the latest development version, you can also use pip with the GitHub project link:

pip install git+

From source

Alternatively, you can clone the repo (or download a zip of the latest code from the GitHub page) and use the provided environment.yml file to create a new environment for The Joker that is set up with all of the dependencies installed. To install in a new conda environment, change to the top-level directory of the cloned repository, and run:

conda env create

When this finishes, activate the environment

source activate thejoker

The project is installable using the standard

python install
