ifpd is fully implemented in Python3, and is distributed through the PyPI network: the Python Package Manager developed and maintained by the Python community, for the Python community. As such, we recommend using
pip3 (PyPI package installer) to install
ifpd. We also envision to pack it as a
conda package in the future (not available yet).
If you have Python3 and
pip3 installed on your computer, you can simply run
sudo -H pip3 install ifpd on a terminal. That’s it! As easy as it gets.
You can also install from github (any point in history, although we suggest to stick with release tags) as follows:
git clone https://github.com/ggirelli/iFISH-probe-design/ cd iFISH-probe-design sudo -H pip3 install .

If you are a
conda user, you can install
ifpd by running the following:
conda skeleton pypi ifpd conda build ifpd
Please, note that
ifpd is a Python3 package tested on Python3.6. Thus, you will need to create an appropriate environment using
