Installing thermochem

The first step to use the thermochem library in Python is to install it onto your computer properly.


Installing the latest stable version (or a specific version) of thermochem is easiest using the pip tool. Simply run this command in your terminal:

$ pip install thermochem

If you do not have pip installed, head over to the Python installation guide, which contains instructions on installing pip.


Thermochem is developed on GitHub. To get the source code, you should install git if you haven’t already, then run the following command in your terminal:

$ git clone

If you are not interested in developing and installing git is difficult, you can download the tarball:

$ curl -OL

Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it simply using the included

$ cd thermochem
$ python install
