Always start with our extensive documentation!
- Installing is easiest with the Conda package manager by running a single command on any of Windows, macOS or Linux:
conda create -c conda-forge -n calliope calliope. See the documentation for more information on installing.
- Simple examples are included with Calliope; the tutorials in the documentation run through these examples.
- A good place to start is to look at the tutorials to get a feel for how Calliope works, and then to read the “Introduction”, “Building a model”, “Running a model”, and “Analysing a model” sections in the online documentation.
- Finally, looking at more fully-featured models used in real studies is a good basis to get started with your own projects — browse the research page for a range of information on work with Calliope, much of which uses freely available models that you can take as a starting point for your own project.
- Please read the documentation first to see whether your question is not already answered there.
- Join the discussion forum on Gitter to discuss Calliope use and development.
- Open a new issue on GitHub if you find a bug or have a feature request. A complete contributors’ guide is on GitHub with details on what information to include when submitting an issue and how to contribute to Calliope development.
- If you have issues with the website, or any other request, get in touch with Stefan Pfenninger.
