Album graphical user interface

NOTE

The graphical user interface of Album just recently hatched and is experimental. There will likely be issues or features you are missing - please let us know either on this page below in the comment section or here. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Start from scratch with the Album Installer

The installer doesn't have a graphical user interface yet. You should see a good amount of console output during the installation. Don't be discouraged.

Linux

Download the Linux Album Installer. Make the installer file executable:

chmod +x album-installer

Run it with this command:

./album-installer

It generates and registers an Album.desktop file - Album should now be listed in your applications.

MacOS

Download the MacOS Album Installer. Make the installer file executable:

chmod +x album-installer 

In the file browser, right click the file and click "Open" and confirm that you want to run this file (there might be better ways, I'm not a MacOS user).

It creates an app on the Desktop that you can launch by double clicking on it.

Windows

Download the Windows Album Installer. Double click it and confirm that you want to run this executable.

What happens behind the scenes?

The Album installer is a one file executable that automatically takes care of the following steps:

  1. It creates a folder called .album in your home directory, which will hold all Album related files.
  2. It installs Miniconda into .album/Miniconda.
  3. It installs the Album environment into .album/envs/album.
  4. It creates a shortcut for launching the graphical user interface of Album.
