CAS-PEAL Database Access API for Bob
This package contains the access API and descriptions for the CAS-PEAL Database. The actual raw data for the database should be downloaded from the original URL. This package only contains the Bob accessor methods to use the DB directly from python, with our certified protocols.
You would normally not install this package unless you are maintaining it. What you would do instead is to tie it in at the package you need to use it. There are a few ways to achieve this:
The package is available in two different distribution formats:
You can mix and match points 1/2 and a/b above based on your requirements. Here are some examples:
That is the easiest. Edit your setup.py in your satellite package and add the following entry in the install_requires section (note: ... means whatever extra stuff you may have in-between, don’t put that on your script):
install_requires=[ ... "xbob.db.caspeal", ],
Proceed normally with your boostrap/buildout steps and you should be all set. That means you can now import the xbob.db.scface namespace into your scripts.
You will need to add a dependence to mr.developer to be able to install from our git repositories. Your buildout.cfg file should contain the following lines:
[buildout] ... extensions = mr.developer auto-checkout = * eggs = bob ... xbob.db.caspeal [sources] xbob.db.caspeal = git https://github.com/bioidiap/xbob.db.caspeal.git ...
