## Package Installation


The easiest way to install the kit is with
`[pip](`. From the terminal, run:

pip install git+

__Note:__ *This will install rgkit system-wide. It is recommended to use
[virtualenv]( to manage development


Installing with `virtualenv` requires the following steps:

mkdir my_robot
cd my_robot
virtualenv env
source env/bin/activate pip
install git+


You can also manually install directly from the source folder. Make a local
copy of the git repository or download the source files. Then, using the
terminal, run the following from the root directory of the source code:

python install

__Note:__ *This will install rgkit system-wide. It is recommended to use
[virtualenv]( to manage development

__Running the game__

After installing the package, the script is executable from the command line
(if you're using virtualenv, remember to activate the environment). There are
two entry points provided: `rgrun` and `rgmap`. The general usage of run is:

usage: rgrun [-h] [-m MAP] [-H] usercode1 usercode2

Robot game execution script.

positional arguments:
usercode1 File containing first robot class definition.
usercode2 File containing second robot class definition.

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-m MAP, --map MAP User-specified map file.
-H, --headless Disable rendering game output.

So, from a directory containing, you can run a game against the
default robot and suppress GUI output with the following command:

rgrun -H

## Developing in the source directory:

`rgkit` is packaged as a module, so you *can* co-locate the module directory
with your own source code and import/run as usual.

|--- rgkit
| |---
| |---
| |---
| |--- ...
| |---

__Running the game__

To run the game with the source configured this way, use the terminal and
execute the following from the inner `rgkit` folder (i.e., in the same
directory as ``):


## Importing:

Once installed, you should only need the `rg` module (which is itself optional)
to develop your own robots. The package can be imported like any other module:

import rg

class Robot:
def act(self):
return ['guard']
