Developer Install Guide

To install the developer client platform, complete the steps on the following pages.

The main instructions on this page assume you are setting up a machine identical to the core Chaste development machines. User installation instructions can be found in source:trunk/README_INSTALLATION.txt. We also have guides for a variety of other situations that the Chaste team have tried:

NB: When creating new install guides, please name the page like 'InstallGuides/GuideName', so that it gets included in the public portion of the wiki.


  • InstallBoost -- not needed on the new (Ubuntu / Fedora Core 6) installs

Optional (not needed to run the code)

  • InstallValgrind -- only needed for memory testing, not needed on the new (Ubuntu / Fedora Core 6) installs

  • InstallCvode -- faster ODE solver for cell_based code (and single-cell cardiac simulations)

Historical items, no longer needed

  • InstallPyCml -- for generating Chaste code from CellML models; now included in the main Chaste code
  • InstallNdiff -- used to be used for comparing results files to a tolerance
