As of version 2.0, everest is pip installable:

pip install everest-pipeline

This should allow you to run the command line utilities as well as to import everest in Python.


If you have the previous version of everest and/or previous versions of k2plr and pysyzygy installed, it might be a good idea to completely remove them before attempting to install everest 2.0.


everest requires george, which in turn needs access to the Eigen3 linear algebra package. If you don’t have that installed, follow the instructions here to get george set up.

Alternatively, the development version of everest is maintained on github. You can install it by cloning the repository and running the setup script:

git clone --recursive
cd everest
python install --user
