These instructions will get RAMSTK up and running on your local machine.
RAMSTK requires PyGTK to be installed. If you plan to install RAMSTK in a virtual environment (not a terrible idea if you're just giving RAMSTK a spin), please see DEVELOPMENT_ENV.md for instructions on installing RAMSTK dependencies. Otherwise, simply use your package manager to install PyGTK and one of the options below to install the remaining dependencies.
To install from PyPI using pip, simply issue the following command:
$ pip install ramstk
With the exception of PyGTK, pip will install any missing runtime dependencies automatically.
Install any missing RAMSTK dependencies using pip, your package manager, and/or build from source. Then download the <version> of RAMSTK source from GitHub Releases you wish to install.
$ tar -xf ramstk-<version>.tar.gz $ cd ramstk-<version> $ python setup.py install
Running the Tests
To run the entire test suite for RAMSTK after installing, simply execute:
$ python setup.py test
To run specific tests or groups of tests, use pytest:
$ pytest -m integration tests/modules/test_allocation.py $ pytest -m calculation tests/analyses/prediction
Coding Style Tests
The test directory contains a script named RunTests.py. This is for executing static checkers such as pylint and is intended for developers. It makes it easier to integrate into an IDE. You can execute the following to see what RunTests.py wraps:
$ tests/RunTests.py --help
After installing RAMSTK, it can be launched from a terminal emulator:
This is a good option if you need to file an issue as the output should be included in your report.
RAMSTK installs a *.desktop file and can be found where ever applications in the category Math or Science are listed.
Please read CONTRIBUTING.md for details on our code of conduct, and the process for submitting pull requests to us.
