Automatic Computational Research Notebook
acorn uses the mutability of python objects, together with decorators, to produce an automatic notebook for computational research. Common libraries like numpy, scipy, sklearn and pandas are mutated with decorators that enable logging of calls to important methods within those libraries.
This is really helpful for data science where experimenting with fits, pipelines and pre-processing transformations can result in hundreds of fits and predictions a day. At the end of the day, it is hard to remember which set of parameters produced that one fit, which (of course) you didn’t realize was important at the time.
The library is well documented.
Depending on the logging level, every time a method/function is called (whether bound or unbound), we log it into a JSON database.
A nice UI using bootstrap populates the HTML dynamically.
If this sparks your interest, please message us. The project is still in early development, so we can’t say more up front.
The matplotlib module is used frequently, but not in the typical way. Most of the methods and objects are used internally unless a plot is being tweaked for some special reason. The matplotlib.cfg file prunes the number of objects that get decorate very aggressively so that only the common calls are logged. You can adjust your own local config file if you spend a lot of time actually coding matplotlib internals.
