[![Coverage Status](](

PyGDX is a Python package for accessing data stored in *GAMS Data eXchange* (GDX) files. GDX is a proprietary, binary file format used by the [General Algebraic Modelling System]( (GAMS); pyGDX uses the Python bindings for the [GDX API](

Originally inspired by the similar package, also named [py-gdx, by Geoff Leyland](, this version makes use of [xarray]( to provide labelled data structures which can be easily manipulated with [NumPy]( for calculations and plotting.

**Documentation** is available at, built automatically from the contents of the Github repository.

PyGDX is provided under the **MIT License** (see `LICENSE`).
