SpikeInterface is a Python framework designed to unify preexisting spike sorting technologies into a single code base.
spikeinterface is a meta-package that wraps 5 other Python packages from the SpikeInterface team:
- spikeextractors: Data file I/O and probe handling.
- spiketoolkit: Toolkit for pre-processing, post-processing, validation, and automatic curation.
- spikesorters: Python wrappers to spike sorting algorithms.
- spikecomparison: Comparison of spike sorting output (with and without ground-truth).
- spikewidgets: Data visualization widgets.
On October 8, 2019, we have released the very first beta version of spikeinterface (0.9.1)
Please have a look at the preprint that describes in detail this project
You can install SpikeInterface from pip:
pip install spikeinterface
Alternatively, you can clone the repository and install from sources the development version:
git clone https://github.com/SpikeInterface/spikeinterface.git cd spikeinterface python setup.py develop
Important: installing with
python setup.py develop DOES NOT install the latest version of the different modules.
In order to get the latest updates, clone the above-mentioned repositories and install them from source.
For using SpikeInterface, please checkout these examples.
Also, you can checkout this tutorial for getting started with SpikeInterface.
