This is a Python package, so you’ll need to have Python installed to use it. If you’re using linux, you probably already have Python. If you’re on Windows, you can download a Python installer from Anaconda , Active State , or even WinPython .
Once you have Python, you can install this package by opening a terminal window and typing the command:
$ easy_install kicost
$ pip install kicost
Note that if you install KiCost using
pip on a Windows system running Python 2.7,
using the default option that web scrapes with parallel processes may cause
MANY errors. You can avoid this problem by:
easy_installto install KiCost, or
- use the
-sKiCost option to serialize the web scraping.
On Linux, for a full install procedure on Python3, use (for Python2, replace
pip on each command):
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip # Or ``python-pip`` to install PIP on Python2. $ sudo -H pip3 install -U pip # Upgrade the PIP version. $ sudo -H pip3 install kicost # Install KiCost from PyPI.
For install the graphical dependence used by KiCost GUI:
$ sudo -H pip3 install wxpython or $ sudo -H pip3 install -U -f https://extras.wxpython.org/wxPython4/extras/linux/gtk3/ubuntu-16.04 wxPython # For Ubuntu 16.04 $ kicost # Execute KiCost without input arguments to initialize the GUI.
For install the last code version from GitHub, use:
$ sudo apt-get install git # It's necessary to have Git installed. $ sudo -H pip3 install -U git+https://github.com/xesscorp/KiCost.git
