Manim extension for making chemistry videos
A Hindi version of this README is available here.
pip install chanim
- Install the external dependencies for manim as described here according to your OS.
- Clone the contents of this repository.
- Open a terminal in the cloned directory and run
pip install -e ., or if you prefer to use poetry instead,
poetry install. This'll install
manimfor you as well if you don't already have it installed. (you'll still need to setup the external dependencies though)
That's about it. You can now do
from chanim import <*|object_name> like any regular Python package.
Here's a little example of it working.
from chanim import * class ChanimScene(Scene): def construct(self): ## ChemWithName creates a chemical diagram with a name label chem = ChemWithName("*6((=O)-N(-CH_3)-*5(-N=-N(-CH_3)-=)--(=O)-N(-H_3C)-)", "Caffeine") self.play(chem.creation_anim()) self.wait()
Type this into a python (
.py) file. I'll assume you named it
In your command prompt/terminal write this (assuming you're in your project directory):
manim -p -qm chem.py ChanimScene
This'll render your Scene and
preview it in your default player (in
Congrats! You've written and played your first animation with chanim (or "chanimation" should I say)
Explore the code and docs (coming soon!) for more on how to use chanim.
Currently chanim only supports drawing compounds and reactions along with a few chemfig commands (such as coordinate bonds and complexes etc.) but more is to come! If you have a suggestion, file an issue with a proper tag.
A Quick Note
There may be some faulty code and a lot of this may not be well made/documented. Feel free to file an issue if something doesn't work properly.
