# Installation¶

## Requirements¶

DEAP is compatible with Python 2.7 and 3.4 or higher. The computation distribution requires SCOOP. CMA-ES requires Numpy, and we recommend matplotlib for visualization of results as it is fully compatible with DEAP’s API.

## Install DEAP¶

We encourage you to use easy_install or pip to install DEAP on your system. Linux package managers like apt-get, yum, etc. usually provide an outdated version.

easy_install deap


or

pip install deap


If you wish to build from sources, download or clone the repository and type:

python setup.py install
