I am trying to describe a computer code and one of its advantages- being easy to download and run, as there is little to no setup.

We aim to facilitate scientific reproducibility and give other practitioners access to a quick-to-get-working yet performant model.

Is there a more suitable and concise adjective describing something that is easy/quick to setup/start/get working/get running? I know this could be paraphrased as for example works right out of the box, but out of curiosity I am looking for an adjective.
