Pronto is hosted on GitHub, but the easiest way to install it is to download the latest release from its PyPi repository. It will install all dependencies of Pronto and then install the pronto module:

pip install pronto


Pronto is also available as a recipe in the bioconda channel. To install, simply use the conda installer:

conda install -c bioconda pronto

GitHub + pip

If, for any reason, you prefer to download the library from GitHub, you can clone the repository and install the repository by running (with the admin rights):

pip install

Keep in mind this will install the development version of the library, so not everything may work as expected compared to a versioned release.

GitHub + setuptools

If you do not have pip installed (the Makefile uses pip to install dependencies and then install pronto), you can do the following (after having properly installed all the dependencies):

git clone
cd pronto
python install
