Option A: Standalone bundles for Windows

Windows users can download ImSwitch in standalone format from the releases page on GitHub. Further information is available there. An existing Python installation is not required.

Option B: Install using pip

ImSwitch is also published on PyPI and can be installed using pip. Python 3.7 or later is required.

pip install ImSwitch

(Developers installing ImSwitch from the source repository should run pip install -r requirements-dev.txt instead.)

You will then be able to start ImSwitch with this command:
