There is more than one way to install assist, here we present two options.
The Easy Way¶
The easiest way to install ASSIsT is to use pip. If you wish to perform a global installation and you have admin rights then do
sudo pip install assist
or to install in some directory under your user account
pip install --user assist
Installing on *nix Systems¶
From the command line do the following (where x.y is the version number):
wget https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/a/assist/assist-x.y.tar.gz tar xvzf assist-x.y.tar.gz cd assist-x.y/ sudo python3 setup.py install
The last command can be replaced by python3 setup.py install --user. See PyPI for all available versions.
To be able to call assist from the command line you must have the executable directory in your $PATH. This can be taken care of my calling the install command in assist. Since the executable is not yet available you will have to call python first.
python3 -m assist install
This will print several messages describing some paths. To verify that assist is now in your path you can try the help option
The install command also takes care of the C and C++ include paths. This will make sure that you can include the header files containing the models, methods and collectors from this project.
