Toolbox for the Non-Gaussian Statistics Framework (NGSF)

Project description

ekit is a collection of small tools used by the Non-Gaussian Statistics Framework (NGSF).

If you use this package in your research please cite Zuercher et al. 2020. (arXiv-2006.12506).




It contains the following tools:

  • paths:

    Can create standardized paths given a prefix, suffix and a dictionary containing some meta-data which gets encoded into the path and can be easily recovered using another function given in the module.

  • context:

    A context handler. The context consists out of a dictionary. The context can be passed on to subclasses. It also holds default values, the allowed parameters and their types and checks if they are correct.

  • logger:

    A logger which can be passed on from module to module. Contains a print function called vprint which only prints if verbose mode is enabled and either prints using a logger if one is available or otherwise just uses the normal print. Can also adjust the severity level of the message.

Getting Started

The easiest and fastest way to learn about ekit is to have a look at the Tutorial and Usage sections in the documentation.
