Here's an introduction to install alipy. We will first introduce the dependencies of alipy, then two different installation ways (install by pip or build from source) will be presented.
python >= 3.4
numpy scipy scikit-learn matplotlib prettytable
Note that, the basic dependencies must be installed, and the optional dependencies are required only if users need to involke KDD'13 BMDR and AAAI'19 SPAL methods in alipy. (cvxpy will not be installed through pip)
Cvxpy is an optimization package used to solve the QP problem in alipy. However, this package needs VC++ 14 environment which may not be installed for all users. In this case, the users who need to involke KDD'13 BMDR and AAAI'19 SPAL methods should install cvxpy manually before using them.
Install alipy from PyPI (recommended):
sudo pip install alipy
or pip install in home directory:
pip install --user alipy
or pip install from github repository for latest source:
pip install git+https://github.com/NUAA-AL/alipy.git
Alternatively: install ALiPy from the GitHub source.
Before started, please ensure the dependencies are installed properly.
First, clone alipy to your local directory.
Then, cd to the ALiPy folder and run the install command:
cd ALiPy sudo python setup.py install
or to build and install from souce in your home directory:
python setup.py install --user
or To build and install from souce for all users on Unix/Linux:
