This library contains reusable code for:
- and more ..
libwave is divided into modules which can be built separately.
Each has its own dependecies.
|wave_benchmark||wave_containers, wave_geometry, wave_utils|
|wave_matching||wave_utils, Boost, PCL|
|wave_optimization||wave_utils, wave_kinematics, wave_vision, Ceres|
|wave_vision||wave_utils, wave_kinematics, wave_containers, Boost Filesystem, OpenCV (calib3d, features2d, highgui, imgproc, videoio)|
The following versions are the minimum we test against. Some earlier versions may work, but are not tested.
- Boost 1.54
- Ceres 1.13
- Eigen 3.3.2
- OpenCV 3.2.0
- PCL 1.8
- yaml-cpp 0.5.1
- GeographicLib 1.49
Building libwave requires CMake 3.2 and a C++11 compiler (tested on GCC 5.4).
The basic set of dependencies can be installed with the Ubuntu package manager using the command
sudo apt-get install libboost-dev libyaml-cpp-dev libeigen3-dev \ build-essential cmake
For convenience, scripts to install other dependencies on Ubuntu 16.04 are
scripts/install. Note: the scripts are not tested on a wide
variety of systems. They may be incompatible with other packages installed on
Install from source
Clone the repo with submodules:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/wavelab/libwave.git
Install the dependencies required for the modules you want to build, as described above. Then build using CMake:
cd libwave mkdir -p build cd build cmake .. make -j8
By default, all libraries whose dependencies are found will be built. Individual libraries can be disabled using CMake options. For example,
cmake .. -DBUILD_wave_vision=OFF
will disable building
Install libwave by running
make install. Alternatively, you can enable the
EXPORT_BUILD option in CMake, which will make the libwave build directory
searchable by CMake without installation.
Known issue with OpenCV:
fail to build if OpenCV 2 is
installed in the default system directory on Ubuntu 16.04 (and OpenCV 3 is
installed elsewhere). A workaround is to remove OpenCV 2 via
sudo apt remove libopencv-dev.
Use with CMake
One libwave has been either installed or exported by CMake, it can be used in
CMakeLists.txt file as follows:
cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.0) project(example) find_package(wave REQUIRED geometry matching) add_executable(example example.cpp) target_link_libraries(example wave::geometry wave::matching)
The documentation consists of an API reference as well as pages on Fundamentals, describing concepts and theory behind the library.
It is generated using Doxygen, using the build target
Notes for Developers
To expedite our development process we use a set of git hooks to run:
- Clang format (pre-commit)
these can be activated by running the
githook_init.bash from the root of the repo
