Hi. Really enjoyed Jeremy's talk in Seattle on Friday. I'm trying to get started on Thunder but ran into a road bump when installing the packages. If you could steer me in the right direction, that'd be great.

I have OSX, Anaconda 4, and python 2.7 installed. I installed thunder using "pip install thunder-python". Now here's the problem: the regression and factorization packages won't install, but registration will. After entering "pip install thunder-regression" at the command line it returns the message "Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement thunder regression (from versions: ) No matching distribution found for thunder-regression." Then the package isn't downloaded or installed. Save goes for factorization. I also tried python 3.4 on windows 7 and got the same error.

Thanks for your help. I'm quite new with python, so I'm guessing I'm missing something obvious.

@freeman-lab that’s exactly what I was thinking this might address. I was trying to think of a simple API that we could implement on both the Bolt and the local versions of the blocked array (or ChunkedArray, I guess)

@tjr1 I don't think thunder-regression or thunder-factorization are up on pip yet

I was imagining that there would be two main ways that being might want to interface with them, in regards to mapping:
  1. Don’t same shape in and out
  2. Arbitrary shape in, general “object” out
@tjr1 @d-v-b yeah, we’re really close to having those ready, but they aren’t published to PyPI just yet
if you’d like to check them out though, you should be able to clone the repo and just put it on your PYTHONPATH
if you do, definitely let us know if you find any bugs, as they should be mostly functional (especially regression)
