Developing Xircuits Core Functions
For most use cases installing via
pip install xircuits should be enough. You can then add and modify the existing components using Python.
Building Xircuits requires nodejs and yarn. The test nvm version is 14.15.3. You may also want to set yarn globally accessible by:
npm install --global yarn
git clone https://github.com/XpressAI/xircuits
Make and activate python env. You will need a Python 3.8 or above.
python -m venv venv
Download python packages.
pip install -r requirements.txt
Run the following commands to install the package in local editable mode and install xircuits into the JupyterLab environment.
# Install package in development mode
pip install -e .
# Link your development version of the extension with JupyterLab
jupyter labextension develop . --overwrite
# Enable the server extension
jupyter server extension enable xircuits
Start up xircuits using:
Xircuits will open automatically in the browser.
Rebuild Xircuits after making changes.
# Rebuild Typescript source after making changes
# Rebuild Xircuits after making any changes

You can watch the source directory and run Xircuits in watch mode to watch for changes in the extension's source and automatically rebuild the extension and application.
# Watch the source directory in one terminal tab
jlpm run watch
# Run Xircuits in watch mode in another terminal tab
jupyter lab --watch
