Installation

Install Python and PortMidi (on OSX)

brew install python --framework
brew install portmidi

Create virtualenv

virtualenv midihack
cd midihack
source bin/activate

Installing isobar fork

When installing gitwig, it will use the latest official version of isobar and install it along with all the other dependencies. However we need to fork and modifiy isobar a bit to run with our MIDI stack (mido instead of rtmidi).

In order to do this we uninstall isobar (if already installed) and install it in our working directories (regular pip installs are not meant to be edited and go somewhere inside lib/ by default).

Clone repository (make sure you're not inside gitwig/)

git clone git@github.com:RocketScienceAbteilung/isobar.git
cd isobar
pip install -e .

Installing gitwig

Clone repository (make sure you're not inside isobar/)

git clone git@github.com:RocketScienceAbteilung/git-wig.git gitwig
cd gitwig
pip install -e .

Run gitwig

git wig

Other utilities

git wig-messages (dump MIDI messages)
git wig-ports (show all MIDI ports found)

or one of the experiments

python experiments/isobar_drumtest.py

You should end up with a virtualenv that looks like

midihack/
 |-- (virtualenv stuff like bin/ lib/ include/)
 |-- isobar/    (installed using pip install -e .)
 `-- gitwig/    (installed using pip install -e .)

And you can now edit both isobar and gitwig.
