Welcome to the reference documentation for HOOMD-blue!

The HOOMD examples and tutorials complement this documentation. Read the HOOMD-blue tutorial online

On laptops/workstations, you can install stable binaries with conda. If you haven’t already, download and install miniconda. Then add the conda-forge channel and install HOOMD-blue:

$ conda config --add channels conda-forge
$ conda install hoomd

If you have already installed hoomd in conda, you can upgrade to the latest version:

$ conda update --all

On clusters, use [singularity containers](https://hub.docker.com/r/glotzerlab/software/) or compile HOOMD from source so that you are using the right MPI version to take advantage of the high performance network. Your cluster may also require a specific version of CUDA.
