A research article detailing Vespucci has been published in the Journal of Open Research Software

This branch is the active branch of the project and, while more stable than the branches of individual contributors, is probably not stable.

After the release of the first 1.0.0 beta, there will be tags established for releases.

Bug reports should be directed to the Issues tab.

Binary Releases:

Releases for all three supported platforms are availible in the Releases tab. The latest binaries are available at Bintray The release package includes the executable, the Vespucci library and runtime pre-requisites and the header files needed to use the library.


Versions up to 1.0.0 are not considered stable and changes between 0.n.0 and 0.n+1.0 may be major. After 1.0.0, 1.n+1.0 will contain new features to 1.n.0, but will have an API that is mostly compatible. n+1.0.0 contains major changes in the API that may break programs built from it. 1.n.x+1 contains a bug fix or minor improvement to 1.n.x

Compiling Vespucci:

Compiling Vespucci from source is not the easiest but still possible. Look at .travis.yml for linux and mac builds and appveyor.yml for windows builds.

Vespucci has the following prerequisites:

  • Qt 5.5+
  • Armadillo (with BLAS/LAPACK and HDF5)
  • mlpack
  • yaml-cpp

Look at the scripts used by .travis.yml and appveyor.yml to figure out how to build on your platform.
