Installation and Setup¶
To install the package, please choose from one of the options below.
No survey data is downloaded when installing or upgrading SNData. All data management is handled explicitly, as outlined in the Slow Start tutorial.
Using PIP (Recommended)¶
To install using the pip package manager, run:
pip install sndata
Pip will automatically install any missing dependencies in your Python environment. If you have any issues installing the package, try installing the dependencies manually and then reinstall sndata.
A list of required dependencies is provided on GitHub via a
requirements.txt document. Dependencies can be installed by running:
# Clone the source code from GitHub git clone http://github.com/djperrefort/SNData SNData # Install dependencies pip install -r SNData/requirements.txt
If pip is unavailable on your system, the package source code is available on GitHub.
# Clone the source code from GitHub git clone http://github.com/djperrefort/SNData SNData # Install the package from source cd SNData python setup.py install --user
As in the previous method, any missing dependencies in your Python environment
should be installed automatically. If you have any issues installing the
package, install each dependency from
requirements.txt and then try again.
Configuring Data Storage¶
By default data downloaded by sndata is stored in the installation directory. This can be changed to a custom directory by specifying the value SNDATA_DIR in your environment (i.e., in you .bash_profile or .bashrc file). For example:
