A set of python modules for machine learning and data mining
Warning: this package has been renamed! scikit-learn
scikits.learn is a python module for machine learning built on top of scipy.
The project was started in 2007 by David Cournapeau as a Google Summer of Code project, and since then many volunteers have contributed. See the AUTHORS.rst file for a complete list of contributors.
It is currently maintained by a team of volunteers.
The required dependencies to build the software are python >= 2.5, setuptools, NumPy >= 1.2, SciPy >= 0.7 and a working C++ compiler.
To run the tests you will also need nose >= 0.10.
This packages uses distutils, which is the default way of installing python modules. To install in your home directory, use:
python setup.py install --home
To install for all users on Unix/Linux:
python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
You can check the latest sources with the command:
git clone git://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn.git
or if you have write privileges:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:scikit-learn/scikit-learn.git
After installation, you can launch the test suite from outside the source directory (you will need to have nosetest installed):
python -c "import scikits.learn as skl; skl.test()"
