Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine.


You will need:

  • Python 3.7 or later
  • Tkinter (python module)


A step by step series of examples that tell you how to get the program running

If you do not have Python 3.7 or later installed run this command in your terminal:

sudo apt-get install python3

If you do not have Tkinter module installed run this command:

sudo apt-get install python3-tk

After installing these dependencies run this command in the terminal inside the folder you downloaded the project in:

sudo python3

Afterwards a window should popup. This is the program's GUI.
