UV-CDAT 2.12 installation notes

[ Back to all versions ]

Follow the instructions about the conda-based versions of UV-CDAT initialization for actually using an installed version of 2.12

What's New?

Installation with Miniconda2

Actual installation

bash-4.1$ conda create -n uvcdat-2.12 -c conda-forge -c uvcdat uvcdat=2.12

# Generate the list of installed packages
conda list -n uvcdat-2.12 > /home/scratch01/jypeter/uvcdat-2.12_list_170907.txt

List of installed packages: uvcdat-2.12_list_170907.txt

Disk space after 2.12 installation

Cloning uvcdat to add specific packages for LSCE

This section is about the creation of the cdatm16 environment

Notes about actually using the cdatm16 conda-based python


bash-4.1$ conda create -n cdatm16 --clone uvcdat-2.12

Checking the permissions

The files of some packages may have been installed with incorrect access rights, and may not be readable by everybody (e.g. pcmdi_metrics/issues/496 or cdp/issues/21). We have to check and correct this by hand:

(cdatm16) bash-4.1$ find uvcdat-2.12 \! -perm /g+r,o+r -ls

Getting ready for a moving default CDAT

See the note about the cdatm link/version. At this point of installation, we are not yet ready to have cdatm point to 2.12.

Customizing UV-CDAT for LSCE

Downloading cdms2/vcs test data

You should download the test data and use it in the example scripts that you want to distribute, and scripts you write for reporting the errors you find (if any…)

bash-4.1$ source activate cdatm16

(cdatm15) bash-4.1$ python -c 'import vcs; vcs.download_sample_data_files(); print "\nFinished downloading sample data to", vcs.sample_data'
Finished downloading sample data to /home/share/unix_files/cdat/miniconda2/envs/cdatm15/share/uvcdat/sample_data

(cdatm16) bash-4.1$ du -sh /home/share/unix_files/cdat/miniconda2/envs/cdatm16/share/uvcdat/sample_data
174M	/home/share/unix_files/cdat/miniconda2/envs/cdatm16/share/uvcdat/sample_data

Downgrading numpy

bash-4.1$ conda install -n cdatm16 -c conda-forge -c pcmdi -c uvcdat numpy=1.12

Packages installed with pip

  • dreqPy: CMIP6 Data Request Python API
    • pip install dreqPy
    • Update with: pip install --upgrade dreqPy
      • Get version number with:
        $ drq -v
        dreqPy version 01.00.06 [Version 01.00.06]

    • We used the following to get a more up-to-date version of esmpy than the one bundled with 2.10
    • bash-4.1$ conda list | grep -i esm
      esmf                      7.0.0                         6    conda-forge

Add here packages that would be useful but have some problems that prevent their installation

  • vacumm: Validation, Analysis, Comparison - Utilities written in Python to validate and analyze Multi-Model outputs, and compare them to observations
    • As of August 08 2017, installing vacumm in 2.10 requires downgrading to 2.10 (see github issue)!
    • Problem solved with vacumm 3.4.1-1 on August 31st! Installation was OK with
      conda install -n cdatm15 -c conda-forge -c vacumm vacumm
  • Install PySPLIT for Sentia
    PySPLIT A package for generating HYSPLIT air parcel trajectories trajectories, performing moisture uptake analyses, expediting HYSPLIT cluster analysis, and for visualizing trajectories, clusters, and along-trajectory meteorological data
    Works with HYSPLiT
    1. conda install -n cdatm15 -c conda-forge fiona geopandas
    2. pip install pysplit

Other packages

There is no warranty that the packages listed below will work correctly, because it was required to bypass the compatibility checks in order to install them…
  • NO such packages now!

Updating some packages

Some packages change more often than others, and can be easily updated the following way:

    • Update with: conda update -n cdatm15 -c conda-forge -c pcmdi -c uvcdat cmor
      • Get version number with: python -c 'from cmor import *; print CMOR_VERSION_MAJOR, CMOR_VERSION_MINOR, CMOR_VERSION_PATCH'
    • Update with: pip install --upgrade dreqPy
      • Get version number with: drq -v

Cleaning up things

Some packages may have files that can only be read by the person who installed CDAT and the LSCE extensions (eg pcmdi-metrics in 2.8.0 and cdp in 2.10)

We check if some of the installed files are missing read access for the group or other, and we manually change the permissions
