The recommended method of installation is through bioconda:
conda install -c bioconda macrel

If you want to use an unreleased version from Github, for example, we provide a script using conda (in particular, using bioconda and conda-forge) to install all dependencies in a Macrel-specific environment:
git clone https://github.com/BigDataBiology/Macrel cd macrel ./install.sh conda activate envs/Macrel_env
Thereafter, to use macrel, activate this environment.
