NOMAD provides a Python package called
The package is hosted on pypi
and you can install it with pip (or conda).
To install the latest stable pypi release, simply use pip:
Since NOMAD v1.1.x is still in beta, there is no official pypi release.
pip install will
still give you the Python library for the NOMAD v1.0.x version.
To install the latest release developer release (e.g. v1.1.x) from our servers use:
pip install nomad-lab --extra-index-url https://gitlab.mpcdf.mpg.de/api/v4/projects/2187/packages/pypi/simple
To install an older legacy version of NOMAD (e.g. v0.10.x), you can of use reference the respective version on pypy:
There are different layers of dependencies that you have to install, in order to use certain functions of NOMAD. The base install above, only installs the necessary packages for accessing the NOMAD Archive and using the NOMAD metainfo (see access the archive).
Other functions, e.g. using the NOMAD parsers to parse your code output, require additional dependencies. You can use the [extra] notation to install these extra requirements:
parsing, everything necessary to run the parsers
infrastructure, everything to run NOMAD services
dev, additional tools that are necessary to develop NOMAD
