This guide is a resource for using the Allen SDK package. It is maintained by the Allen Institute for Brain Science.
As of October 2019, we have dropped Python 2 support.
Use a virtual environment, e.g Anaconda. After the installation is complete, open up a terminal (in Windows open Anaconda3 Command Prompt).
Create a new conda environment and install the AllenSDK using pipconda create -n allensdk conda activate allensdk pip install allensdk
Add conda env to ipykernel so that the notebook can use itpip install ipykernel python -m ipykernel install --user --name=allensdk
Download one of our many notebooks to a new folder.
In your terminal, navigate to the directory where you downloaded the Jupyter Notebook example and start jupyer notebookjupyter notebook
Other Distribution Formats¶
The Allen SDK is also available from the Github source repository.
