Installing Python

Pynapse requires an installation of Python. A pre-built Python 3.7.9 folder installs to C:\TDT\python-3.7.9 with Synapse and is automatically configured in Pynapse. It has everything you need to run Pynapse out of the box.

Custom Plotting and User Interface

If you want to use matplotlib and/or PyQt5 to develop your own custom plotting and user interface that extends beyond Pynapse's built-in plots and user controls, follow these instructions:

  1. Download the pre-built Python folder from TDT's website.

  2. Delete the existing C:\TDT\python-3.7.9, and extract the downloaded zip contents into C:\TDT\python-3.7.9
