Tachyonic Project photonic currently fully supports CPython 3.6.
A universal wheel is available on PyPI for photonic. Installing it is as simple as:
$ pip3 install photonic
Installing the photonic wheel is a conveniant way to get up and running quickly in a development environment, but for an extra speed boost when deploying your application in production, photonic can compile itself with Cython.
The following commands tell pip to install Cython, and then to invoke photonic’s setup.py, which will in turn detect the presence of Cython and then compile the cythonized photonic framework with the system’s default C compiler.
$ pip3 install cython $ pip3 install photonic
Tachyonic Project photonic infrastructure and code is hosted on GitHub. Making the code easy to browse, download, fork, etc. Pull requests are always welcome!
Clone the project like this:
$ git clone https://github.com/TachyonicProject/photonic.git
Once you have cloned the repo or downloaded a tarball from GitHub, you can install Tachyon like this:
$ cd photonic $ pip3 install .
Or, if you want to edit the code, first fork the main repo, clone the fork to your development area, and then run the following to install it using symbolic linking, so that when you change your code, the changes will be automatically available to your app without having to reinstall the package.
Keep in mind Cythonized C code for all modules is included during install or develop. During development code alterations you need run setup.py after each change.
$ cd photonic $ python3 setup.py develop
During development without explicitly running setup.py after each change, you can use the following. It clears the compiled .cpython.so modules to ensure code is loaded from Python sources.
$ python3 setup.py clean
You can manually test changes to the photonic by switching to the directory of the cloned repo:
$ python3 setup.py test
