Imageio is written in pure Python, so installation is easy. Imageio works on Python 3.5+. It also works on Pypy. Imageio depends on Numpy and Pillow. For some formats, imageio needs additional libraries/executables (e.g. ffmpeg), which imageio helps you to download/install.
To install imageio, use one of the following methods:
- If you are in a conda env:
conda install -c conda-forge imageio
- If you have pip:
pip install imageio
- Good old
python setup.py install

For developers, we provide a simple mechanism to allow importing
imageio from the cloned repository <https://github.com/imageio/imageio.git>.
See the file
imageio.proxy.py for details.
Further imageio has the following dev-dependencies:
pip install black flake8 pytest pytest-cov sphinx numpydoc
