This software suite works out-of-the-box on Linux and Windows 64-bit machines.
Python 2.7/3.x (or newer) with Tkinter installed.
On Windows, Tkinter is usually shipped with Python. On Linux, the following packages should be installed (tested for Ubuntu):sudo apt-get install python-tk
Java Version 8. On Ubuntu:
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
As of Version 1.0.0, PRAC is shipped as a
pip-compliant package. For installing it, just checkout the code from:
$ git clone https://github.com/danielnyga/prac.git $ cd prac
Install it with:
$ python setup.py install
If you want to develop in PRAC, it makes sense to directly run the code from within the repository, without installing using
distutils. To do that, a few more steps are required:
Choose wether you want to use Python 2 or Python3. In the following, we assume Python 3 as the language of choice.
Install the dependencies:$ pip install -r python3/requirements.txt
Create the following link:$ ln -s ../../_version python3/prac/_version
You should have a MongoDB (version > 3.x) installation running on your local machine. On Ubuntu, you can install it by
$ sudo apt install mongodb
By default, it will grant local access to everyone without authentication. If your MongoDB setup requires authentication, you can put a file named
pracconf in your user data folder (
~/.local/share/prac/ by default) with the following format:
[mongodb] host=localhost port=27017 user=<username> password=<password>
PRAC comes with a very small initial database to showcase the core functionality. Download and install it with:
$ cd data $ mongorestore --db prac howtos
If you have installed the
pip package, you can just run
$ pracquery "start the centrifuge."
from the console to run a complete inference using the provided modules. By adding the parameter
-i, you can select the modules to be executed manually.
If you run PRAC from the repository, you have to go to the
python2 subdirectory, depending on which Python version you chose. Then invoke the Python interpreter with the respective script:
$ python pracquery.py "start the centrifuge."
