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 then install the pronto module:

$ pip install --user 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 --user

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

GitHub + setuptools

If you do not have pip installed, you can still clone the repository and run the file manually, although you will need to install the project dependencies yourself:

$ git clone
$ cd pronto
# python install
