FURY supports Python 3.5+. You can currently still use Python 2.7 but it will soon stop being supported as the Python 2.7 end of life is on December 31st 2019.
The mandatory dependencies are:
numpy >= 1.7.1
vtk >= 8.1.0
scipy >= 0.9
The optional dependencies are:
matplotlib >= 2.0.0
dipy >= 0.16.0
Installation with PyPi¶
In a terminal, issue the following command:
$ pip install fury
Installation with Conda¶
Our conda package is on the Conda-Forge channel. You will need to run the following command:
$ conda install -c conda-forge fury
Installation via Source¶
Step 1. Get the latest source by cloning this repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/fury-gl/fury.git
Step 2. Install requirements:
$ pip install -r requirements/default.txt
Step 3. Install fury via:
$ pip install .
$ pip install -e .
Step 4: Enjoy!
Test the Installation¶
You can check your installation via this command:
$ python -c "from fury import get_info; print(get_info())"
This command will give you important information about FURY’s installation. The next step will be to run a tutorial.
Running the Tests¶
Let’s install all required packages for the running the test:
$ pip install -r requirements/default.txt $ pip install -r requirements/test.txt
There are two ways to run FURY tests:
From the command line. You need to be on the FURY package folder:
pytest -svv fury
To run a specific test file:
pytest -svv fury/tests/test_actor.py
To run a specific test directory:
pytest -svv fury/tests
To run a specific test function:
pytest -svv -k "test_my_function_name"
Running the Tests Offscreen¶
FURY is based on VTK which uses OpenGL for all its rendering. For a headless rendering, we recommend to install and use Xvfb software on linux or OSX. Since Xvfb will require an X server (we also recommend to install XQuartz package on OSX). After Xvfb is installed you have 2 options to run FURY tests:
$ export DISPLAY=:0 $ Xvfb :0 -screen 1920x1080x24 > /dev/null 2>1 & $ pytest -svv fury
$ export DISPLAY=:0 $ xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0 1920x1080x24" pytest -svv fury
Populating our Documentation¶
Let’s start by showcasing the
docs folder structure:
docs folder structure above:
sourceis the folder that contains all
tutorialsis the directory where we have all python scripts that describe how to use the api.
demosbeing the FURY app showcases.
experimentaldirectory contains experimental Python scripts. The goal is to keep a trace of expermiental work.
Building the documentation¶
Step 1. Install all required packages for the documentation generation:
$ pip install -U -r requirements/default.txt $ pip install -U -r requirements/optional.txt $ pip install -U -r requirements/docs.txt
Step 2. Go to the
docs folder and run the following command to generate it (Linux and macOS):
$ make -C . clean && make -C . html
or under Windows:
$ ./make.bat clean $ ./make.bat html
Step 3. Congratulations! the
build folder has been generated! Go to
build/html and open with browser
index.html to see your generated documentation.
