Parallel Neuron 7.3 for Mac installer script

Post by peadargrant » Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:51 pm

Hi everyone. During a recent re-installation of NEURON due to laptop theft (of all things), I decided to record and script the steps needed to install OpenMPI, IV, NEURON, NEURON Python module and HDF5 (not really necessary but used in my own workflows). It might be of some use to people here, so I've put it on GitHub:

You will need to install XCode from the app store and (possibly) the SciPy superpack first for the install to be successful. In any case, you should review the script before using it!

Note: it's a UNIX-style installation of NEURON so you won't get any Mac icons or similar.
