Following the latest source¶
These are the instructions if you just want to follow the latest NumPy source, but you don’t need to do any development for now. If you do want to contribute a patch (excellent!) or do more extensive NumPy development, see Development workflow.
The steps are:
- Install git
- get local copy of the git repository from Github
- update local copy from time to time
Get the local copy of the code¶
From the command line:
git clone git://github.com/numpy/numpy.git
You now have a copy of the code tree in the new numpy directory. If this doesn’t work you can try the alternative read-only url:
git clone https://github.com/numpy/numpy.git
Updating the code¶
From time to time you may want to pull down the latest code. Do this with:
cd numpy git fetch git merge --ff-only
The tree in numpy will now have the latest changes from the initial repository.
