Motivated by several recent discussions for installing and building on Windows, I’ve put together a ‘Quickstart Fortran’ Installer for Windows which includes: GCC-Gfortran, fpm, Git and OpenBLAS (BLAS/LAPACK).
The installation also contains a helper script to fetch, build and install the latest version of
The installer is aimed at beginners or those not familiar with MSYS2 or WSL.
Please try it out if you are a Windows user and let me know how you find it - feedback is welcome.
Some ideas for the future:
- Include LFortran compiler as well
- Make it an online installer (currently 244MB download)
- Make a lightweight installer for fpm only
(Creating Windows installer for fpm · Issue #580 · fortran-lang/fpm · GitHub)
- Move under Fortran-Lang and promote to new users on fortran-lang.org?
