A lightweight Python implementation of a subset of the ACT-R cognitive architecture’s Declarative Memory

Project description

PyACTUp is a lightweight Python implementation of a subset of the ACT-R cognitive architecture’s Declarative Memory, suitable for incorporating into other Python models and applications. It is inspired by the ACT-UP_ cognitive modeling toolbox.

There is online documentation of PyACTUp, and the sources are on Bitbucket.

PyACTUp requires Python version 3.6 or later. PyACTUp also works in recent versions of PyPy.

Normally, assuming you are connected to the internet, to install PyACTUp you should simply have to type at the command line

pip install pyactup


Depending upon various possible variations in how Python and your machine are configured you may have to modify the above in various ways

• you may need to ensure your virtual environment is activated
• you may need use an alternative scheme your Python IDE supports
• you may need to call it pip3 instead of simply pip
• you may need to precede the call to pip by sudo
• you may need to use some combination of the above

If you are unable to install PyACTUp as above, you can instead download a tarball from bitbucket. The tarball will have a filename something like pyactup-1.0.tar.gz. Assuming this file is at /some/directory/pyactup-1.0.2.tar.gz install it by typing at the command line

pip install /some/directory/pyactup-1.0.2.tar.gz


Alternatively you can untar the tarball with

tar -xf /some/directory/pyactup-1.0.2.tar.gz


and then change to the resulting directory and type

python setup.py install
