Installation from sources¶
The following dependencies need to be installed in order to install
git to clone the source code.
The cmake>=3.10 build system.
A recent C++ compiler supporting the
C++17standard (tested with gcc-9).
The hdf5>=1.10 library.
The boost>=1.55 library.
python3interpreter (to build the documentation and the Python API).
On Ubuntu install those dependencies with:
sudo apt install git build-essential libhdf5-dev libboost-dev python3 cmake
Compilation and installation¶
First, clone the
h5features repository from github and go to its root
git clone --recursive https://github.com/bootphon/h5features.git cd h5features
Then create a
build directory (to store intermediate and compiled files) and
cmake from it (alternatively you can use
cmake-gui to easily
customize build options) and finally compile the project:
mkdir -p build cd build cmake .. make # or "make -j4" to speed up compilation using 4 CPU cores make install
By default h5features is installed to
/usr/local on UNIX and
C://Program Files/h5features on Windows. To install it in another
directory use the following option to cmake:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<installation path> ..
Run the Test (optional)¶
The compilation of the test suite is not included by default in the cmake
configuration. To enable it, run it with the
option, then compile the project and execute the tests with
cmake -DH5FEATURES_BUILD_TEST=ON .. make make test
Build the documentation (optional)¶
The compilation of the documentation (the one you are currently reading) is not
included by default in the cmake configuration. To enable it, tun it with the
-DH5FEATURES_BUILD_DOC=ON option and build the docs in html with
cmake -DH5FEATURES_BUILD_DOC=ON .. make doc
