PyTorch was recently launched. This is a small article on how to install PyTorch on your system. It is available on anaconda the package manager.

Firstly you need to install Anaconda Package Manager for Mac. You can download the latest Anaconda package manager from https://www.continuum.io/downloads#osx. Download the command line interface as it is lighter by around 60mb and it’s shows installation errors easier. Depending on the version you have on your system download the 2.7 or 3.x version. Run the following command to start installation

bash Anaconda2–4.2.0-MacOSX-x86_64.sh

It will first as you to read the license and then will install at the default location of [/Users/<username>/anaconda2]. Which is generally fine. You may want to customise if required. The installation takes sometime, so go have some coffee around this time. At the end it will also add the command conda to the bash command list.

Once conda is installed you can start installing PyTorch in your system. Run the below command:

conda install pytorch torchvision -c soumith

Output will look something like this below…

The above screen can change with future releases. Since the software is freshly baked expect changes to happen frequently.

You can follow the below link to start building you next Deep Learning and Neural Networks project on a dynamically generated graph from PyTorch

Any doubts, drop a comment below.
