TubeTK/Build Instructions

From KitwarePublic
Jump to: navigation, search

There are two ways of building TubeTK:

  • (Option 1) Slicer-Dependent Build
  • (Option 2) Stand-Alone Build

If you are going to use TubeTK as a library for building your own C++ programs or for processing data using the command-line or scripts, it is sufficient to build TubeTK as a (Option 2) Stand-Alone Build.

If you want a graphical user interface (albeit to a limited subset of TubeTK's methods), you should follow the (Option 1) Slicer-Dependent Build instructions.

(Option 1) Slicer-Dependent Build

It uses a compiled version of Slicer to provide its dependencies.

In this build format,

  1. TubeTK produces a set of libraries and command-line programs that can be used to process images from the command line and to build other applications.
  2. TubeTK methods are available from within the Slicer application against which it is built.

This build format is tested nightly on Windows, OS X, and Linux machines.

This build format has the following steps:

  • Install requirements and options
  • Download source
  • Configure using CMake
  • Build

Install Requirements and Options

CMake

CMake 3.4 or greater is required.

  • The Mac/Windows binaries can be downloaded from http://cmake.org
  • The linux installation from source is easiest. Assuming an older version of cmake is already installed, and you want to install v3.4.1, do the following:
sudo apt-get build-dep cmake
sudo apt-get install libgtkmm-2.4-dev glade-gtk2 libglademm-2.4-dev
git clone http://github.com:/Kitware/CMake.git
cd CMake
git checkout v3.4.1
cd ..
mkdir CMake-Release
cd CMake-Release
cmake ../CMake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
make -j8

Slicer

  • If you are building the Stand-Alone version of TubeTK, you do not need to build Slicer.

Notes:

  • To address the multiple dependencies required (and optional) for VTK, we recommend installing the build dependencies of ParaView prior to building Slicer:
sudo apt-get build-dep paraview


Boost (optional)

Download and build Boost:

Notes:

  • Linux: TubeTK creates dynamic libraries that have static links to Boost libraries. Since Boost static libraries on Linux are not compiled with fPIC, you must compile Boost from source to use it with TubeTK.
    • ./bootstrap.sh
    • ./bjam -j14
    • ./bjam cxxflags=-fPIC cflags=-fPIC -a link=static -j14
  • Mac: if compiling for compatibility with older versions of MacOS, you may need to build boost using the following command:
    • ./b2 toolset=clang cxxflags="-stdlib=libstdc++" linkflags="-stdlib=libstdc++" link=static install -a
    • Slicer and TubeTK matches its build environment with the environment used to build qmake. This means that all code build using Slicer and TubeTK must also build using that environment. So, on some systems you will need to specify stdlib=libstdc++ (for 10.8) or stdlib-libc++ (for 10.9 and beyond).

Download Source

Download the source via git

Configure

Create a directory, outside of the source directory, to hold the compilation

  • mkdir TubeTK-Release
  • cd TubeTK-Release

Within that compilation directory, run cmake and point it to where the source is located. We recommend using a cmake with a GUI configuration editor. This is the default on Windows and Mac. On Linux (or from Mac command-line) type:

  • cmake-gui ../TubeTK

Set the following CMake variables

  • TubeTK_USE_SLICER = On
  • Slicer_DIR = <Path to your Slicer build directory>
  • Linux and Mac only, also set:
    • CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE = <same build type as Slicer installation: Debug or Release>

Build

Windows

Load the TubeTK solution file in Visual Studio

  • Select File -> Open -> Project/Solution -> open TubeTK-Release/TubeTK.sln
    • INITIAL BUILD: Perform the initial build using the TubeTK.sln file at the top-level of TubeTK-Release. This will update and build the libraries that TubeTK depends on (ex. VTK, ITK), and then build TubeTK.
    • SUBSEQUENT BUILDS: Subsequent builds MUST be initiated using the TubeTK.sln file in the subdir TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build. This will build TubeTK only. You may have to periodically build from the top-level of TubeTK-Release to get updates to the libraries that TubeTK depends on.
  • Choose your build type: Release, Debug, etc. It MUST match the build type chosen for Slicer.
  • Right click on the "ALL_BUILD" project and select "Build".

Linux and OS X

  • INITIAL BUILD: Perform the initial build using your compiler at the top-level of TubeTK-Release. This will update and build the libraries that TubeTK depends on (ex. VTK, ITK), and then build TubeTK.
    • cd TubeTK-Release
    • make -j8
  • SUBSEQUENT BUILDS: Subsequent builds MUST be initiated in the subdir TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build. This will build TubeTK only. You may have to periodically build from the top-level of TubeTK-Release to get updates to the libraries that TubeTK depends on.
    • cd TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build
    • make -j8

(Option 2) Stand-Alone Build

In this build format, TubeTK produces a set of libraries and command-line programs that can be used to process images from the command line and to build other applications.

Install Requirements and Options

GIT

Install the latest stable release.

Qt

QT version 4.8.6 or 4.8.7 is REQUIRED.

  • Windows
    • You will want the 64-bit version of Qt, with WebKIT support. See details at:

http://www.slicer.org/slicerWiki/index.php/Documentation/Nightly/Developers/Build_Instructions/Prerequisites/Qt#Windows_3

CMake

CMake 3.0 or greater is required.

  • The Mac/Windows binaries can be downloaded from http://cmake.org

    • ./bjam cxxflags=-fPIC cflags=-fPIC -a link=static -j14

Python (optional)

Versions 2.7.x is supported at this time.

Download and install per system instructions at:

http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/

    • Using these wheels is recommended over Anaconda and other installation packages, because they also include and expose versions of Qt (for example) that are incompatible with Slicer and TubeTK.
  • Linux and Mac
    • Python is already included with most Linux and Mac variants.

Configure

Before starting the configuration, make sure that you have virtualenv installed (Linux Only).

If not, just install it with :

  • sudo apt-get install pyton-pip
  • pip install virtualenv


Create a directory, outside of the source directory, to hold the compilation

  • mkdir TubeTK-Release
  • cd TubeTK-Release

Within that compilation directory, run cmake and point it to where the source is located. We recommend using a cmake with a GUI configuration editor. This is the default on Windows and Mac. On Linux (or from Mac command-line) type:
