Update / Uninstall

Sardine is distributed as a Python package. As such, installing, updating or deleting is similar to doing so with a regular Python package.

Deleting Sardine

  • In your terminal, run pip uninstall sardine.
  • Delete your sardine directory if you cloned it using Git.
  • You will have to get rid of the configuration files manually.

Note that you will still have an installation of SuperCollider and SuperDirt if you followed the full install. Refer to their respective documentation if needed.

Updating Sardine

I recommend installing Sardine using a freshly cloned version using Git. This will allow you to get updates much faster by just running git pull from your terminal inside of the Sardine folder. For the updates to be instantly applied to your version, note that you need to have installed Sardine using the --editable flag. Please refer to the installation section to learn more about this. If you followed the tutorial, you must have it installed in editable mode already.

The --editable mode means that your Sardine installation that Python refers to is folder you just cloned and not a copy of it. Any modification made to it will be immediately mirrored to the application you have installed.
