Installation on macOS

NOTE: Our testing coverage in terms of environments and machines on macOS is very limited. Please submit an issue if you face any issue.


We test the installation on macOS 11.

The following software are required for installation:

  • Python>=3.8 (You can also use another distribution. e.g. pyenv or Miniconda).

    • pip

    • wheel (pip install wheel)

    • setuptools (You may need to upgrade the version of setuptools with pip install -U --no-deps setuptools.)


See NNabla package installation using PIP (note that the binary packages for the CUDA extension are not available for macOS. Please build it from source).
