Set Up

For Users:

For Testers & Developers:
To install the requirements first run the command

sudo python3 install
>Note: We only support Python 3.5 or later versions.

>Note: there is no sudo for windows as well as when you have root privelages.
Just run commands without sudo

>Note: some setups use python instead of python3 and pip3 instead of pip

>Note: For some OS' you might need to install Imagetk(needed in our GUI) seperately
for eg: in Ubuntu you can install it by:
`sudo apt-get install python3-pil.imagetk`


To run just type

from anywhere inside the terminal/console.

If you want to try out our experimental GUI feature:

UIP is in its very early development stage, you can go over the issues on the
github issues page and send in a PR.

your commits in the PR should be of the form:

shortlog: commit message

commit body
Fixes <issue number>

where short log is the area/filename where you make the change
commit message is the very brief description of the change made by you and any
other additional details go into the commit body.


While developing, to test, you should first install the test-requirements
by running:

pip install -r test-requirements.txt
then test your work by the command:
If you want to lint your files you can run
and commit all changes suggested

Do remember to keep your master branch updated at all times
and always work on a different branch.

Happy coding :)
