If you like the project, please star it on GitHub!

Installation and Upgrade

The module requires Python 3.7.0 or above.

For Anaconda we offer packages only from Python version 3.8 and higher.

For the PyPy interpreter we offer packages only from Python version 3.9 and higher.

The current dependencies are listed here.

If you run into errors during the installation take a look here.

Packages are created automatically with GitHub Actions

When a new release is to be created, we start two GitHubActions:

Both start virtual Windows/Linux/Mac servers provided by GitHub in the cloud with preconfigured environments and create the respective compilations and stub files, pack them into wheels and conda packages and then publish them on GitHub, PYPI and Anaconda. This is a transparent method that makes it possible to trace the source code behind a compilation.

A Cython binary, PyPy or source code based CPython wheel of the latest version with pip from PyPI

Our Cython and PyPy Wheels are available on PyPI, these wheels offer significant advantages for Python developers:

  • Performance Boost with Cython Wheels: Cython is a programming language that supplements Python with static typing and C-level performance. By compiling Python code into C, Cython Wheels can significantly enhance the execution speed of Python code, especially in computationally intensive tasks. This means faster runtimes and more efficient processing for users of our package.

  • PyPy Wheels for Enhanced Efficiency: PyPy is an alternative Python interpreter known for its speed and efficiency. It uses Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation, which can dramatically improve the performance of Python code. Our PyPy Wheels are tailored for compatibility with PyPy, allowing users to leverage this speed advantage seamlessly.

Both Cython and PyPy Wheels on PyPI make the installation process simpler and more straightforward. They ensure that you get the optimized version of our package with minimal setup, allowing you to focus on development rather than configuration.

On Raspberry Pi and other architectures for which there are no pre-compiled versions, the package can still be installed with PIP. PIP then compiles the package locally on the target system during installation. Please be patient, this may take some time!


pip install unicorn-fy


pip install unicorn-fy --upgrade

A Conda Package of the latest version with conda from Anaconda

The unicorn-fy package is also available as a Cython version for the linux-64, osx-64 and win-64 architectures with Conda through the lucit channel.

For optimal compatibility and performance, it is recommended to source the necessary dependencies from the conda-forge channel.


conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda config --add channels lucit
conda install -c lucit unicorn-fy


conda update -c lucit unicorn-fy

From source of the latest release with PIP from Github

Linux, macOS, …

Run in bash:

pip install$(curl -s | grep -oP '"tag_name": "\K(.*)(?=")').tar.gz --upgrade


Use the below command with the version (such as 0.14.2) you determined here:

pip install --upgrade

From the latest source (dev-stage) with PIP from GitHub

This is not a release version and can not be considered to be stable!

pip install --upgrade

Conda environment, Virtualenv or plain Python

Download the latest release or the current master branch and use:

  • ./environment.yml

  • ./meta.yaml

  • ./pyproject.toml

  • ./requirements.txt

  • ./
