Installation

A typical installation should follow the instructions on the Bitbucket repository for our installer. The installer requires Python; for Windows users we (highly) recommend the Anaconda Python Distribution.

Notes:

  • Only Python 2.7 is supported at present. We expect to port to Python 3 in the future.
  • BIAS is an optional component as is not installed by default. BIAS requires 32-bit LabVIEW. See the BIAS page for details.
  • mise is no longer being supported. Autonomous optimisation can instead be implemented by writing an analysis script for lyse that uses the runmanager API to create new shots.

Please contact us if you have problems with the installation process.

Bitbucket Repositories

If you would like to manually install the suite, or contribute back to the project, you will want to directly access the bitbucket repositories. These repositories are located at bitbucket.org/labscript_suite.

This includes repositories for:

Additionally, the labscript_utils repository contains modules common to all programs, and the labscript_devices repository contains the device specific code used by labscript, BLACS and runviewer.
