In conjunction with the upcoming v14.0 release of the LSST Science Pipelines, I’ve been working on improving and expanding the installation documentation. These docs cover:
- The newinstall.sh installation method and the brand-new binary packages.
- The lsstsw installation method.
- The Docker images.
- How to build individual packages from source for development.
I’d like to hear your feedback on these new docs:
Feel free to reply to this topic or add comments on the open PR at https://github.com/lsst/pipelines_lsst_io/pull/61.
Important: The draft newinstall.sh documentation refers to a
v14.0 tag that doesn’t exist yet. You can still try out the EUPS binary installation with a recent tag:
eups distrib install lsst_distrib -t w_2017_38
p.s. While researching this documentation I came to appreciate how awesome the Docker images are. Whether you’re a user or a developer, I encourage you to try out the Docker images instead of installing your own stack.
