Installing the easyAI library

We will be using a library called easyAI in this chapter. It is an artificial intelligence framework and it provides all the functionality necessary to build two-player games. You can learn more about it here:

http://zulko.github.io/easyAI

Install it by running the following command:

$ pip3 install easyAI

Some of the files need to be accessible in order to use some of the pre-built routines. For ease of use, the code provided with this book contains a folder called easyAI. Make sure you place this folder in the same folder as your code files. This folder is basically a subset of the easyAI GitHub repository available here:

https://github.com/Zulko/easyAI

You can go through the source code to make yourself more familiar with it.
