Installation and Hello, World!

Installation

With pip you can install the latest release from PyPI:

pip install --user peppy

Update peppy with pip:

pip install --user --upgrade peppy

Releases and development versions may also be installed from the GitHub releases:

pip install --user https://github.com/pepkit/peppy/zipball/master

Hello world!

Now, to test peppy, let's grab an clone an example project that follows PEP format. We've produced a bunch of example PEPs in the example_peps repository. Let's clone it:

git clone https://github.com/pepkit/example_peps.git

Then, from within the example_peps folder, enter the following commands in a Python session:

import peppy

project = peppy.Project("example_basic/project_config.yaml") # instantiate in-memory Project representation
samples = project.samples # grab the list of Sample objects defined in this Project

# Find the input file for the first sample in the project
samples[0].file

That's it! You've got peppy running on an example project. Now you can play around with project metadata from within python.
