A complete list of requirements

TRIQS is built upon several tools, C++ libraries and Python packages, which, if not present already in your system, can be freely downloaded and installed. All the dependencies of TRIQS are listed below with a brief description.

C++ compilers

TRIQS is written in modern C++, i.e. using the latest C++ standard as defined by the ISO standardization committee. It is our philsophy to follow the C++ language evolution closely in order to keep the TRIQS code-base as simple and maintainable as possible. For this reason we have decided to limit the compilation of TRIQS to the rapidly evolving gcc and LLVM based compilers, including clang and IntelLLVM. We support the following compiler versions:

  • g++ 12.x and higher
  • clang 15.0 and higher
  • IntelLLVM (icx) 2023.1.0 and higher
