Amuse binary build

Today we announce the availability of AMUSE binary builds.

The binary builds do not depend on any support packages and can be run right after unpacking.

We currenlty provide the following binary builds:

Linux 64bit amuse-latests-Linux_x86_64.tar.gz
OS X 32bit amuse-latests-Darwin_i386.tar.gz
OS X 64bit amuse-latests-Darwin_x86_64.tar.gz

These binaries are updated every day.


  1. unpack the package (tar -xvf amuse-latests-Linux_x86_64.tar.gz)
  2. cd to the directory
  3. run ./amuse

This will open an interactive python shell with amuse in the python path.

An example session to run a simple nbody simulation

from amuse.lab import *
code = Hermite()
code.evolve_model(1 | nbody_system.time)
print code.kinetic_energy
print code.potential_energy

You can continue by following the Getting started with AMUSE documentation.

The binary release should run but is still a work in progress, if you encounter any problems please contact us.
