How do I install CIAO?

CIAO 4.15.2 can be installed as a set of binary packages for recent Linux or macOS systems in one of two ways:

  1. Using the conda package manager as described on the CIAO conda download page.

  2. Using the ciao-install script, as described on the CIAO download page.

The System Requirements and Platform Support pages provide information on exactly what systems CIAO is tested and supported.

CIAO is also available as source code, which can be compiled on your system. Please note that due to some of the required packages, compilation is not straightforward and there is no support for compilation on unsupported systems (such as NetBSD or Windows SubSystem for Linux). CIAO is not supported on Windows.
