pip is a Python package manager that makes it much easier to download and install Python packages,
as a part of such
snakemake. If you don’t have pip installed, this Python installation guide can guide
you through the process.
Advanced users who want to get the Python packages elsehow can skip this step.
Snakemake is essential to wBuild workflow (learn why in the Overview of functionality).
You can get Snakemake either using
pip or building from sources.
By installing wBuild from pip you automatically install the Snakemake, should it be absent.
3. R and packages¶
The original purpose of wBuild’s work is to let you put additional build/dependencies info in your R scripts, so we suppose you have already installed R. Now, the very important step for installation is to install various R packages:
as Snakemake inevitably uses them while working with wBuild.
You can install packages for R with
install.packages(packagename) directive. Find out more
for instance here.
Please make sure you’ve read Requirements first.
To install wBuild, run this command in your terminal:
$ pip install wbuild
The sources for wBuild can be downloaded from the Github repo.
You can either clone the public repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/wachutka/wbuild
Or download the tarball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/wachutka/wbuild/tarball/master
Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it with:
$ python setup.py install
