Install LensKit

To install the current release with Anaconda (recommended):

conda install -c conda-forge lenskit

You can also use pip to install LensKit in a stock Python environment, such as a virtual environment:

pip install lenskit

To use the latest development version, install directly from GitHub:

pip install git+

Then see Getting Started.


If you install MKL-based BLAS in Conda, LensKit will use it to optimize several of its operations:

conda install -c conda-forge libblas=*=*mkl
