HDMF requires having Python 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, 3.11, or 3.12 installed. If you don’t have Python installed and want the simplest way to get started, we recommend you install and use the Anaconda Distribution. It includes Python, NumPy, and many other commonly used packages for scientific computing and data science.
HDMF can be installed with
conda, or from source. HDMF works on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
