mosaik — Installation and Downloads

Installation and Downloads

Mosaik runs on Linux, OS X and Windows. We recommend the installation with the Python packet manager pip, but we provide also an virtual machine image for an easy start with mosaik.

Install using pip

Instructions for the installation with pip can be found in the documentation for Linux, OS X, and Windows.


  • Python 3.6 or higher
  • pip which is bundled with Python 3.6 and above
  • virtualenv, a tool to manage the dependencies of different Python projects

As the mosaik framework doesn’t do much by itself we provide a simple demo scenario.
