Installing Codac for Python use

Install the Codac Python package

In case you want to use Codac only with Python, then the installation procedure is simply:

# You may have to upgrade pip (19.0.0 required at least)
pip3 install --upgrade pip
pip3 install codac

The configurations are officially supported at the moment:


Linux (amd64)

Windows (x64)

Windows (x86)

macOS (arm64)

macOS (x86_64)


Python 3.6


Python 3.7

Python 3.8

Python 3.9

Python 3.10

Python 3.11

If a configuration in this table does not work, please contact us.


macOS Big Sur and later (arm64):
Rosetta might be necessary to run VIBes.


sudo pip3 install --upgrade vibes # Add here any other non-binary wheels dependencies...
sudo pip3 install --upgrade --nodeps --platform macosx_10_9_x86_64 --only-binary=:all: --target=/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Library/Frameworks/Python3.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages codac

Depending on the way Python was installed, the path to specify after --target may differ, e.g. if Python was installed from, it may be /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.10/lib/python3.10/site-packages. Otherwise, run python3 -m site to check the site-packages full path in sys.path list. Also, the value 10_9 may need to be changed to 10_14 (or possibly another value) for some Python versions.


Unsupported ARM-based computers can still probably follow Installing local Python binding (not tested).

Update your Codac Python package

For updating your already installed version of Codac, the procedure is:

pip3 install codac --upgrade

Test your Codac Python package

In order to verify that your installation is working properly in Python, you can run:

python -m unittest discover codac.tests
