See full fluff documentation for detailed installation instructions and usage examples.

Quick Installation

Please note: from version 3.0 on, fluff only works on Python 3.6+ and Python 2.x will no longer be supported. For a Python 2 version you can install fluff 2.1.4. Keep in mind that most scientific Python software will stop supporting Python 2 in 2020: https://python3statement.org/.

The most straightforward way to install fluff is with conda using the bioconda channel.

If you have not used bioconda yet, first set up the necessary channels (in this order):

$ conda config --add channels defaults
$ conda config --add channels conda-forge
$ conda config --add channels bioconda

Now you can install fluff:

$ conda install biofluff
