multimatch-gaze is a Python-based reimplementation of the MultiMatch algorithm (Jarodzka, Holmqvist & Nyström, 2010). The original Matlab toolbox was kindly provided via email by Dr. Richard Dewhurst and the method was ported into Python with the intent of providing an open source alternative to the Matlab toolbox.
The module provides the possibility to compute the similarity of two scan paths with a terminal command or within a Python instance (see section API).
It is recommended to use a dedicated virtualenv.
# create and enter a new virtual environment (optional) virtualenv --python=python3 ~/env/multimatch . ~/env/multimatch/bin/activate
Via pip install¶
pip install multimatch-gaze
All bugs, concerns and enhancement requests for this software can be submitted here. All contributions, be it in the form of an issue or a pull-request, are always welcome. If you wish to test the functionality of multimatch-gaze locally, for example prior to a pull-request, install pytest and run the following command from the root of the repository:
python -m pytest
python -m pytest -s -v
We thank Dr. Richard Dewhurst for kindly and swiftly providing the original Matlab code for the MultiMatch toolbox via e-mail and being supportive of an open source implementation.
