xtensor is a header-only library, we provide standardized means to install it, with package managers or with cmake.
Besides the xtensor headers, all these methods place the
cmake project configuration file in the right location so that third-party projects can use cmake’s
find_package to locate xtensor headers.
Using the conda package¶
A package for xtensor is available on the conda package manager.
conda install -c conda-forge xtensor
Using the Debian package¶
A package for xtensor is available on Debian.

Using the Spack package¶

From source with cmake¶
You can also install
xtensor from source with cmake. This requires that you have the xtl library installed on your system.
On Unix platforms, from the source directory:
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/prefix .. make install
On Windows platforms, from the source directory:
mkdir build cd build cmake -G "NMake Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/prefix .. nmake nmake install
See the section of the documentation on Build and configuration, for more details on how to cmake options.
