Clorm requires Python 3.7+ and Clingo 5.4+ (as of writing Clingo 5.5.0 is the latest version). There are many ways to install Clorm. In order of simplicity, it can be installed using pip, conda, from the Potassco PPA (for Ubuntu users), and finally from source.

Installing from a Python package manager

The pip package can be installed from PyPI:

$ pip install clorm

For conda installation, assuming you have already installed some variant of Anaconda, first you need to install Clingo:

$ conda install -c potassco clingo

Then install Clorm:

$ conda install -c potassco clorm

Installing from the Potassco PPA

Ubuntu users can install Clorm (and Clingo) from the Potassco PPA:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:potassco/stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt install python3-clorm


Unfortunately, the Clingo Ubuntu packages from the standard Ubuntu repository do not work correctly with Python. Even though the clingo executable has been compiled with Python support, the Clingo Python module itself is missing from these packages.

Installing from source

The project is hosted on github at and can also be installed using git:

$ git clone
$ cd clorm
$ pip install .        # or `python install` if you don't have pip


The above instructions for installing from source assumes that you have already installed a version of Clingo that has been compiled with Python support, as well as the Python Clingo module.
