oocgcm is a pure Python package, but some of its dependencies are not. The easiest way to get them installed is to use conda. You can install all oocgcm dependancies with the conda command line tool:

conda install xarray dask netCDF4 bottleneck


The project is still in pre-alpha phase, the only way to install oocgcm is therefore to clone the repository on github:

git clone
cd oocgcm
python install


Test oocgcm with py.test:

cd oocgcm
py.test oocgcm
