Installation
==============
Simple things simple: to run IOSACal you need the following software
on your computer:
- Python_
- NumPy_
- Matplotlib_
All are available for major platforms. Order of installation matters.
.. _Python: http://www.python.org/
.. _NumPy: http://numpy.scipy.org/
.. _Matplotlib: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/
Download
--------
As of version 0.4.1 (released in 2018) IOSACal is in beta stage. You can always
get the *development version* from the `git repository`_, either with the
`complete project history`_ or download the latest *released version* as a
simple `source archive`_.
.. _`git repository`: https://codeberg.org/steko/iosacal
.. _`complete project history`: https://codeberg.org/steko/iosacal/commits/branch/master
.. _`source archive`: https://codeberg.org/steko/iosacal/archive/v0.4.1.zip
Installing
----------
Just extract the downloaded archive, move to the main directory and::
python setup.py install
from the main directory. Using pip_ and virtualenv_ is strongly
recommended.
.. _pip: https://pip.pypa.io/
.. _virtualenv: https://virtualenv.pypa.io/
After the install has completed, the ``iosacal`` binary will be available.
Specific operating system instructions
--------------------------------------
Debian/Ubuntu
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From a terminal::
sudo apt-get install python3-matplotlib
(this installs also Python, Numpy and all other requirements).
Windows
~~~~~~~
You might find more convenient to use a dedicated Python distribution
instead of separately installing all packages:
- `Enthought Python Distribution`_ (a commercial distribution for
scientific computing)
- `Python(x,y)`_ (a free distribution for scientific and engineering
computing)
.. _`Enthought Python Distribution`: http://enthought.com/products/epd.php
.. _`Python(x,y)`: http://www.pythonxy.com/
