Installation

The following commands should install ToMCAT and its dependencies for macOS and Ubuntu (tested with Ubuntu 18.04) users:

git clone https://github.com/ml4ai/tomcat
cd tomcat && ./tools/install

For people using other operating systems, note that ToMCAT depends on the following: CMake 3.12+, Boost 1.69+, a C++17 compatible compiler (tested with GCC 9 and AppleClang 11.0 so far), libfmt, doxygen, ffmpeg, OpenCV, dlib, Java 8, and Gradle. You can inspect the script tools/install_dependencies.sh to see what exactly is being installed and how.

Please make sure your internet connection is active while the install.sh script is running. macOS users may want to turn off their firewalls.

We don’t officially support Windows right now, but pull requests that add Windows support are welcome.

For developers

To speed up builds, create a file called gradle.properties and add org.gradle.daemon=true to it:

echo "org.gradle.daemon=true" > ~/.gradle/gradle.properties
