neurotic requires Python 3.6 or later.
Note that the latest release of one of neurotic’s dependencies, pyqtgraph 0.10.0, is incompatible with Python 3.8 or later on Windows unless that dependency is installed via conda-forge (recommended method) (details).
Standalone Installers (recommended for beginners)¶
Downloadable installers make installing neurotic easy for beginners. They can be downloaded from the GitHub Releases page:
These installers are intended for users who do not want to independently install Python or conda just to use neurotic. They will install neurotic and everything it needs (including a fully contained Python environment) into a dedicated directory on your computer. On Windows, the installer will also create a Start Menu shortcut for launching the app.
Alternate Method: conda (recommended for Pythonistas)¶
conda users can install neurotic and all of its dependencies with one command:
conda install -c conda-forge neurotic
On Windows, this will also create a Start Menu shortcut for launching the app.
Alternate Method: pip¶
Install neurotic from PyPI using
pip install neurotic
Note that installation via
pip skips one dependency: PyAV, which is
required for displaying videos, and without which neurotic will ignore
videos. PyAV is not easily installed with
pip on some systems, especially
Windows. The easiest way to separately install PyAV is using conda:
conda install -c conda-forge av
