I have been trying now for over a week to download some GitHub add-ons for Orange. I do not know how to use Terminal and I am asking for help to install these packages. The link is firstname.lastname@example.org:biolab/orange3-prototypes.git People keep telling me that they should appear but they don't. Does anyone have Orange running on a Mac so that they can try this to see if it works. And then can you post the exact code that I need to input into the terminal to get it to work? Thanks.
The easiest way to install Orange's addons is through the application itself. Open Orange, in the menu click
Options -> Addons. In the popup window mark
Orange3-Prototypes and click OK. Note, that doing so you will get the latest version that is published on PyPi.
If you would want to install the bleeding edge version directly from github — assuming that you installed Orange by downloading a bundle from it's website and not for example by using Anaconda — do the following. Open a terminal and paste this command:
/Applications/Orange3.app/Contents/MacOS/pip install git+https://github.com/biolab/orange3-prototypes.git
Doing so you will trigger the
pip that came with the bundle and instruct it to install the addon directly from github.
Further, to install
opencv, which is required by some widgets (e.g. webcamecapture) run
/Applications/Orange3.app/Contents/MacOS/pip install opencv-python
Note, however, that this is unofficial version of opencv but it seems easier to install.
