umx!

Installing umx (60 seconds)

umx is easy to learn, but first you need to install it ☺

1f If you haven’t already, install umx now. In R, just type:

install.packages("umx")

library("umx")

That’s it: There is no step 2: You’re ready for your first umx model!

Want the bleeding edge version of umx?

The development version of umx lives on github.

Loading libraries from github differs slightly from the procedure you may be used to. instead of install.packages(), we’re going to use devtools::install_github()

# if you haven't already, install & load devtools now
install.packages("devtools")
library("devtools")

With devtools installed, installing umx is easy:

install_github("tbates/umx")
library("umx")

On windows you might need

install_github("tbates/umx", args = "--no-multiarch")
