Git Repositories

The Nek5000 source code and example problems are hosted on GitHub.  You can download them as described below.

Downloading the Nek5000 Source Code

The Nek5000 source code is maintained at https://github.com/Nek5000/Nek5000. We maintain two branches of the source code:

  1. A ‘master’ branch, which always contains a stable release
  2. A ‘develop’ branch, which always contains the latest features and bug fixes

You may download either branch with either of the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/Nek5000/Nek5000.git -b master
git clone https://github.com/Nek5000/Nek5000.git -b develop
