For Windows you can download biopeaks.exe. Double-click the executable to run it. You don’t need a Python installation on your computer to run the executable. Currently, there are no executables available for macOS or Linux (please open an issue if you’re interested).
If you don’t have experience with installing Python packages and/or if you aren’t sure if you have Python on your computer start by setting up Python. Go to https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/miniconda.html and install the latest miniconda distribution for your operating system. Follow these instructions in case you’re unsure about the installation. Once you’ve installed miniconda, open the Anaconda Prompt and run the following commands (hit enter once you’ve typed each of the lines below and wait for the commands to be executed):
conda config --add channels conda-forge conda config --set channel_priority strict conda create -y -n biopeaks python=3.8 scipy numpy pyside2 matplotlib pandas conda activate biopeaks pip install biopeaks
After the successful installation, open the application by typing
Note that every time you open the Anaconda Prompt, you need to activate the biopeaks environment before starting the application:
conda activate biopeaks biopeaks
Have a look at the project’s pyproject.toml file
for an up-to-date list of the dependencies. In order to manage the dependencies, it is highly recommended to install
biopeaks into an isolated environment using miniconda,
Poetry, or other tools for creating and managing virtual environments.
Once you’ve set up an environment containing all the dependencies, install
pip install biopeaks
You can then open the application by typing
