On how to get the LSST science pipelines delivered to your computer

Here you will find information on how to get a binary distribution of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) science pipelines to use on your personal computer without installing the software.

As a user of this software distribution service, both stable and weekly releases of the LSST software appear as if they were locally installed on your computer. Since new releases just appear under the local path /cvmfs/sw.lsst.eu without you to take any action, you can focus on using the software, instead of on the technicalities of installing and updating it regularly.
