If you have the latest stable version of Python installed and the Gaphor dependencies installed, you can also install Gaphor using a wheel from PyPI.

If you don’t have the latest stable version of Python and the Gaphor dependencies installed, follow the development environment installation instructions section, but do not clone the repository. Optionally, create a virtual environment. Then execute the following:

$ pip install gaphor
$ gaphor
