Slicer-dependent build

This is the recommended build process.

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

Slicer

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

Oddities

Boost (optional)

Download and build Boost:

Oddities

  • 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

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

  • cmake ../TubeTK

Set the following CMake variables

  • Build_TYPE = <same build type as Slicer installation: Debug or Release>
  • TubeTK_USE_SLICER = On
  • Slicer_DIR = <Path to your Slicer build directory>

Build

Windows

Load the TubeTK solution file in Visual Studio

  • Select File -> Open -> Project/Solution -> open TubeTK-Release/TubeTK.sln
    • 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.
  • Right click on the "ALL_BUILD" project and select "Build".
    • Subsequent builds should be initiated in the subdir TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build to save time. 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.
      • Right click on the "TubeTK" project and select "Build".

Linux and OS X

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 $HOME/TubeTK-Release
  • make

Subsequent builds should be initiated in the subdir TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build to save time. 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 $HOME/TubeTK-Release/TubeTK-build
  • make

Stand-Alone

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.

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 (Requirement)

Install the latest stable release.

GIT (Requirement)

Install the latest stable release.

Qt

Install version 4.8.6

Boost (optional)

Download and build Boost:

Oddities

  • 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

Python (optional)

Versions 2.7.x is supported at this time.

Download and install per system instructions at:

Download Source
