Software Dependencies

The VIS Framework uses many software libraries to help with analysis. These are required dependencies:

  • Python 2.7
  • music21
  • pandas
  • mock (for testing)
  • coverage (for testing)
  • python-coveralls (to for automated coverage with coveralls.io)

These are recommended dependencies:
