There are different ways of installing avtraj. Avtraj can either be installed via pip, conda, or manually. We recommend that you install avtraj with pip.

$ pip install avtraj

You can install also avtraj with conda, if you prefer.

$ conda install -c conda-forge avtraj

Conda is a cross-platform package manager built especially for scientific python. It will install avtraj along with all dependencies from a pre-compiled binary. If you don’t have Python or the conda package manager, we recommend starting with the Anaconda Scientific Python distribution, which comes pre-packaged with many of the core scientific python packages that MDTraj uses (see below), or with the Miniconda Python distribution, which is a bare-bones Python installation.

AVTraj supports Python 2.7 or Python 3.4+ (recommended) on Mac, Linux, and Windows.
