Installation

For installing jpylyzer, you have three options:

  1. Install with the Pip package manager. This works on all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.), but you need to have the Python interpreter available on your system. Jpylyzer is compatible with Python 2.7, and Python 3.2 and more recent (Python 3.0 and 3.1 are not supported).

  2. Alternatively, for Windows users stand-alone binaries are available. These allow you to run jpylyzer as anexecutable Windows application, without any need for installing Python. This option is particularly useful for Windows users who cannot (or don’t want to) install software on their system.

  3. For Linux users Debian packages are available. These allow you to run jpylyzer without any need for installing Python.

These options are briefly outlined below. See the User Manual for a more exhaustive description.

Installation with Pip (all platforms)

First make sure you have a recent version of pip. Then install jpylyzer with the following command:

pip install jpylyzer

This may require administrator/super user privileges. If you don’t have these privilges, you can do a single-user install:

pip install jpylyzer --user

Windows binaries

Download the binary (64 or 32 bit) using the link using the link in the right-hand bar of this page. Unzip the contents of this file to an empty folder on your PC. Jpylyzer should now be ready for use.

Optionally, you may also want to add the full path of the jpylyzer installation directory to the Windows ’Path’ environment variable. Doing so allows you to run jpylyzer from any directory on your PC without having to type the full path. In Windows 7 you can do this by selecting ‘settings’ from the ‘Start’ menu; then go to ‘control panel’/’system’ and go to the ‘advanced’ tab. Click on the ‘environment variables’ button. Finally, locate the ‘Path’ variable in the ‘system variables’ window, click on ‘Edit’ and add the full jpylyzer path (this requires local Administrator privileges). The settings take effect on any newly opened command prompt.

Installation from Debian packages (Linux)

For a number of Linux architectures Debian packages of jpylyzer exist. To install, download the package for your architecture using the link in the right-hand bar of this page, and then open it with your package manager (which can be invoked by double-clicking or right-clicking on the .deb file). Alternatively you can also do this in the command terminal by typing:

sudo dpkg -i jpylyzer_1.18.0_amd64.deb

For Ubuntu and Debian, alternative packages are available in the official release channels. To install simply run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-jpylyzer

In both cases you need to have superuser privileges.

A more exhaustive description of the above installation options can be found in the User Manual.
