Due to our complex dependencies, we strongly recommend that Menpo users consider using conda as their Python distribution.
Saying that, we know many users already have Python environments and virtualenvs set up and don't want to migrate to a new Python distribution, regardless of the benefits. For these users, we ensure that the core
menpo library is
cython installed before you can pip install menpo:
pip install numpy cython
We've these installed, you can pip install:
pip install menpo
To be clear, we are currently only able to offer the core
menpo library through
pip. If you want to use
menpodetect, for now you'll need to switch to conda, or try a standalone Menpo Playground (which is simply a folder you can download with the whole project ready to go inside it).
