Working on the package

You have some cool feature and/or algorithm you want to add to the package. How do you go about it?

First clone the package.

git clone


pip install -e PhiK/

this will install PhiK in editable mode, which will allow you to edit the code and run it as you would with a normal installation of the PhiK correlation analyzer package.

To make sure that everything works try executing the tests, e.g.

cd PhiK/
phik_trial .


cd PhiK/
python test

That’s it.
