SpineML The Spiking Neural Mark-up Language


The latest binary release of the SpineML toolchain was made in January

  1. We provide packages for Mac, Debian and Ubuntu.

NOTE: we recommend compiling from the GitHub source rather than using the packages


The Mac installation package is available here: https://github.com/SpineML/SpineCreator/releases/


Debian packages are available for Jessie (Debian 8) and unstable (a.k.a. Debian Sid). Download the 4 .deb files for your architecture (amd64 for 64 bit; i386 for 32 bit).

Debian Jessie debs are here

Unstable/sid debs are here

Note: These are stored on a non-commercial web server which does not have a commercially signed SSL certificate; you will have to Okay some security warnings to access the files!

Now install the 4 .deb files:

sudo dpkg -i brahms_0.8.0-1_amd64.deb spineml-preflight_0.1.0-1_amd64.deb spineml-2-brahms_1.1.0-1_amd64.deb spinecreator_0.9.6-1_amd64.deb


Ubuntu packages for Ubuntu versions 14.04 (trusty) and above are available from the following Personal Package Archive: https://launchpad.net/~sebjames/+archive/ubuntu/spineml

To install, open a terminal and do the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sebjames/spineml
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install spinecreator

A note about Windows

Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to prepare Windows builds of SpineCreator and SpineML-2-BRAHMS, although some work has been carried out towards this goal. If you’re interested in making Windows builds, please contact Seb James.
