This library is designed for python 3. We only support python 2 on a best-effort basis.

It is recommended to install pycompmusic and dependencies into a virtualenv. Do it like this:

virtualenv -p python3 env
source env/bin/activate
python install

If you want to be able to edit files and have the changes be reflected, then install compmusic like this instead

pip install -e .

Now you can install the rest of the dependencies:

pip install -r requirements.txt


There are sphinx docs available in the docs directory. Install sphinx to be able to build them

pip install sphinx

to build the docs run

make html

from the root directory.
