As Python package

Instructions for users without a Python installation

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

biopeaks

Note that every time you open the Anaconda Prompt, you need to activate the biopeaks environment before starting the application:

conda activate biopeaks
biopeaks

Instructions for users who already have a Python installation

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 biopeaks with

pip install biopeaks

You can then open the application by typing

biopeaks
