Computational Imaging Software Guides
In this repository we host two guides for the development and distribution of software projects of the CI group of CWI: the software release guide for releasing and maintaining open-source software alongside your research, and a general how-to guide that covers many different topics for software development.
Software release guide
It is a step-by-step guide for converting an arbitrary software project into a package that is usable, installable, and understandable by others. We do not only discuss the hows, but also the whys of distributing scientific software.
This (living) document is a collection of small, self-contained tutorials to accomplish specific tasks that have to do with software development.
