Setup

DeDop Core Installation

From Binaries

DeDop Core is distributed as pre-compiled binaries which can be retrieved from here. For the windows Windows platforms there is a dedicated installer executable. For MacOS and Unix a shell script file is provided. All platform distributions have a bundled Python interpreter, which makes it rather large in size (roughly 300-400 MB). As mentioned before, this package also contains DeDop processor and DeDop webapi. To install DeDop Core in Windows, double click the exe file.

In MacOS, run the following commands:

chmod u+x DeDop-core-1.x.x-MacOSX-x86_64.sh
./DeDop-core-1.x.x-MacOSX-x86_64.sh

In Unix, run the following commands:

chmod u+x DeDop-core-1.x.x-Linux-x86_64.sh
./DeDop-core-1.x.x-Linux-x86_64.sh

During installation, you will be requested the installation location as well as a preference to add this location to your PATH. When unsure, just follow the default (no).

Run the following command to start DeDop Shell:

<dedop_core_installation_dir>\Scripts\dedop-shell.bat   # Windows
<dedop_core_installation_dir>/bin/dedop-shell.command   # MacOS
<dedop_core_installation_dir>/bin/dedop-shell.sh        # Unix

From Source

DeDop is programmed in Python so you first need to setup a suitable Python environment. We recommend using a Miniconda Python3 environment to create an isolated environment that is independent from the default Python in your machine. Refer to this page for the instruction on how to install Miniconda on your machine. It is recommended to install Miniconda with Python 3.x since DeDop Core uses Python 3.

To install DeDop Core from source, first you need to checkout the DeDop Core GitHub repository:

git clone https://github.com/DeDop/dedop-core.git

Step into the newly created source directory:

cd dedop-core

After installing Miniconda, open a terminal window and create dedop environment with all the required dependencies as listed in environment.yml by typing:

<miniconda_installation_dir>/bin/conda env create --file environment.yml

To activate this environment, type:

source <miniconda_installation_dir>/bin/activate dedop      # Linux, MacOS
<miniconda_installation_dir>\Scripts\activate dedop         # Windows

Install DeDop in the Python environment dedop:

python setup.py install

After the installation is finished, start DeDop Shell by typing:

dedop --help

If you plan to run DeDop Studio, please run the following command:

dedop-webapi --version

This is necessary to trigger the creation of ~/.dedop/<version_num>/dedop-location file. In the installation from binary, this is not required because at the end of the installation, this file is automatically created.

DeDop Studio Installation

As illustrated in :ref:`this diagram<dedop_diagram>`, DeDop Studio is dependent on DeDop Core in performing any processing tasks. For this reason, make sure that DeDop Core has been installed in your computer before performing DeDop Studio installation. Failure to do that will result in the DeDop studio failing to startup.

From Binaries

DeDop is distributed as pre-compiled binaries which can be retrieved from DeDop Studio release page. For the windows Windows platforms there is an easy one-click installer executable. For MacOS, the installer is available as dmg file and zip file, while for Unix, the installer is available as tar.gz, zip, and AppImage files. All DeDop Studio installers (except the Unix tar.gz and zip files) are light-weight and executed by double clicking them. They don’t require any extra user input.

Please note that in Windows, you may need to accept the warning at the beginning in regards to installing a third-party software. Similarly in MacOS, you may need to allow installation of apps downloaded from App Store and identified developers. More information about it can be found in Gatekeeper page.

After the installation has been completed, you will find an executable file named DeDop-Studio, which you can search using start menu (Windows) or Spotlight (MacOS).

Pre-requisites

The following software needs to be installed on your machine before you can start installing DeDop Studio from source:

  • nodejs v6.9.1
  • npm v3.10.8 (comes with nodejs)

Go to here for downloading nodejs and here for the installation guide.

How-to-install

Clone dedop-studio repository:

git clone https://github.com/DeDop/dedop-studio.git

Do npm install:

cd dedop-studio
npm install

Create a dedop-config.js inside dedop-studio directory and put the location of dedop-webapi.exe (Windows) or dedop-webapi (MacOS and Linux) under webAPIConfig field. The location of dedop-webapi will be where the dedop environment is, eg.:

<miniconda_installation_dir>\envs\dedop\Scripts\dedop-webapi.exe    # Windows with DeDop Core installation from source
<miniconda_installation_dir>/envs/dedop/bin/dedop-webapi            # MacOS & Unix with DeDop Core installation from source

<dedop-core_installation_dir>\Scripts\dedop-webapi.exe              # Windows with DeDop Core installation from binary
<dedop-core_installation_dir>/bin/dedop-webapi                      # MacOS & Unix with DeDop Core installation from binary

More information about the can be found in dedop-config.template.js. Sample values for webAPIConfig in different OS's are provided here:

# Windows
webAPIConfig: {
  command: "C:\\Miniconda3\\envs\\dedop\\Scripts\\dedop-webapi.exe",
  servicePort: 2999,
  processOptions: {}
}

# MacOS
webAPIConfig: {
  command: "/Users/userName/miniconda3/envs/dedop/bin/dedop-webapi",
  servicePort: 2999,
  processOptions: {}
}

# Linux
webAPIConfig: {
  command: "/home/userName/miniconda3/envs/dedop/bin/dedop-webapi",
  servicePort: 2999,
  processOptions: {}
}

Compile:

npm run compile

Start:

npm start
