OpenStructure is released under the LGPL Version 3 license.

The latest stable release is 2.7 (release notes).


For a simple and portable way to use OpenStructure we recommend using a container solution. We provide recipes to build images for Docker and Singularity.

The latest recipes and instructions can be found on our GitLab site, including a link to OpenStructure's own GitLab Docker registry (Docker instructions and Singularity instructions).

Compiling from Source

Compilation instructions can be found here.

Cloning the GIT repository is the best option if you would like to keep and up-to-date version of OpenStructure or would like to get involved in the development process.
