Contrib: Third Party Dependencies

Third party dependencies used amongst others by the Biochemical ALgorithms Library (BALL). Sources are based on original tarballs and are patched to fit our needs.

Requirements

  • git
  • CMake (version >= 3)
  • Perl (ActivePerl on Windows)
  • A compiler (e.g. gcc/g++, clang, MSVC)
  • Python (version >= 2.6)

Installation

  • Example OSX/Linux
    $ git clone https://github.com/BALL-Project/ball_contrib.git
    $ cd ball_contrib
    $ mkdir build
    $ cd build
    $ cmake ..
    $ make

  • Example Windows
    $ git clone https://github.com/BALL-Project/ball_contrib.git
    $ cd ball_contrib
    $ md build
    $ cd build
    $ cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64"
    $ msbuild BALL_contrib.sln

  • IMPORTANT BUILD NOTE
    Do not use the '-j' flag for make and the /maxcpucount switch for MSbuild! The behaviour is undefined and will most likely break your build. If you want to allow multiple build threads please specify the number during the CMake configuration run using the command line option -DTHREADS=n_threads

Available CMake variables

  • PACKAGES
    Select only a subset of third-party dependencies to be installed.
    Available packages are: boost, qt5, fftw, eigen3, tbb, sip, openbabel.
    • Example 1: build all dependencies (recommended)
      cmake ..
    • Example 2: build only Boost
      cmake .. -DPACKAGES=boost
    • Example 3: build Boost and Qt5
      cmake .. -DPACKAGES="boost;qt5"
  • THREADS
    Number of threads to use in the build steps.
  • CONTRIB_INSTALL_PREFIX
    Installation target directory. Default: ball_contrib/build/install
  • DOWNLOAD_TIMEOUT
    Timout (seconds) for a single package download. Default: 420.
    If package downloads fail, try to increase this timeout.

Available CMake options

  • SKIP_QTWEBENGINE
    Do not build Qt5 module QtWebEngine, which is required only for the PresentaBALL and BALLaxy plugins. This extremely speeds up building Qt5.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
