On selected high-performance computing (HPC) systems, ImpactX has documented or even pre-build installation routines. Follow the guide here instead of the generic installation routines for optimal stability and best performance.


Use a impactx.profile file to set up your software environment without colliding with other software. Ideally, store that file directly in your $HOME/ and source it after connecting to the machine:

source $HOME/impactx.profile

We list example impactx.profile files below, which can be used to set up ImpactX on various HPC systems.

Your HPC system is not in the list? Our instructions are nearly identical to installing WarpX, documented here.

Also, please do not hesitate to open an issue and together we can document how to run on your preferred system!
