Install Aydin

You can install Aydin in two different ways.

The first approach is to download the operating system specific ‘app bundles’ that we have prepared. This approach requires zero command-line interactions. It is as simple as downloading the bundle, then installing/unzipping the bundle, and finally double-clicking on the Aydin app to start it.

The second approach is to install Aydin via pip. With this approach, you will have a more more flexible installation. This can help to set certain GPU-using dependencies, but als requires more familiarity with Python package managers.
