I’ve recently learned how to create python packages for the Anaconda distribution. I have created pystan packages for 64 bit Linux and Windows systems. Anyone is free to download them with
conda install pystan -c mikesilva
This will save others the effort of downloading and compiling the program. This is not the biggest hurdle in the world but may be large enough to prevent others from using this great software package. I’m happy to make it available so we can focus our efforts on using the tool rather than building the tool.
