Running the examples

Running the examples is really easy. The only thing you need is Python 3. Create a virtual environment via the command:

python3 -m venv venv

This creates the folder venv/ in your current directory. It will contain the necessary libraries for running the examples.

To activate the virtual environment, use the following command:

# On Windows:
call venv\Scripts\actviate.bat
# On Mac / Linux:
source venv/bin/activate

Then, execute the following to install the necessary dependencies:

pip install -Ur src/requirements.txt

Once you have done this, use cd to navigate to the example you're interested in in the src/ folder. You'll find a .py file there, typically You can run it with the command:


Please note that the virtual environment must still be active for this to work.
