If you want the cutting-edge version of ChipWhisperer, you can clone the repository. If you have Git already set up, this is easy to do:

git clone
cd chipwhisperer
git checkout develop
cd software
python develop --user

The user flag installs ChipWhisperer in the user's local python site-packages directory. Note bleeding-edge development is done on the "develop" branch, which you probably want if you are trying GIT.

You may also want the OpenADC software, which is necessary to build new firmware for the ChipWhisperer FPGA. This is unnecessary for most users. If you need it:

cd ..
git submodule init
git submodule update
cd openadc/controlsw/python
python develop --user
