Python interpreter for executable documents¶
This is the Python implementation of an interpreter capable of interpreting executable documents defined in JSON using Stencila Schema.
Pyla is available as a Python package,
pip3 install stencila-pyla
Register Pyla so that it can be discovered by other executors on your machine,
python3 -m stencila.pyla register
Then, if you have ``executa` <https://github.com/stencila/executa>`_ installed then you can run it using the
repl command and specifying
python as the starting language,
executa repl python
To install the packages needed for development, run
make setup or,
pip3 install --user --upgrade -r requirements-dev.txt
We use Black to maintain a consistent code formatting style. To run it use
black . or
There are two options to run the interpreter without installing this package (which can be useful when developing).
python3 setup.py develop which will link this library into your site packages directory. You can then execute
documents with the above command.
You can run the interpreter as a module by changing into the
stencila directory first, and then omitting the
$ cd stencila $ python3 -m pyla execute <inputfile> <outputfile> [parameters]
