Getting started

The easiest way to get the latest version of RnaChipIntegrator is to use Python’s pip utility to install the latest version of the program directly from the Python Package Index (PyPI), by doing:

pip install RnaChipIntegrator

Note

You may need to have root privileges to install to the system directories, in which case preface this command with sudo i.e.:

sudo pip install RnaChipIntegrator

or you can do:

pip install --user RnaChipIntegrator

to install it under your home area.

Alternatively you can use Python’s virtualenv mechanism to install a non-root version (this example creates one under .venv):

virtualenv .venv; . .venv/bin/activate
pip install RnaChipIntegrator

To update an existing version of the program to a newer one, use:

pip install -U RnaChipIntegrator

For other ways of installing please refer to the INSTALL document included with the distribution.
