# Orange

Orange is a component-based data mining software. It includes a range of data visualization, exploration, preprocessing and modeling techniques. It can be used through a nice and intuitive user interface or, for more advanced users, as a module for Python programming language.

## Installing

To build and install Orange run:

python setup.py build
python setup.py install


from the command line. You can customize the build process by editing the setup-site.cfg file in this directory (see the comments in that file for instructions on how to do that).

## Running tests

After Orange is installed, you can check if everything is working OK by running the included tests:

python setup.py test


This command runs all the unit tests and documentation examples. Some of the latter have additional dependencies you can satisfy by installing matplotlib, PIL and scipy.

## Starting Orange Canvas

Start orange canvas from the command line with:

orange-canvas


## Installation for Developers

To install in development mode run:

python setup.py develop
