Edit parameters for the Astra generator program and run generator using a GUI.

Project description

# generatorGUI

Edit parameters for the Astra generator program and run generator using a GUI.

### Purpose
Summarizes all the parameters for Astra generator in a table and displays it in
the PyQt
environment.

The parameters are saved in an *Excel* format. The user can start from a
blank "all-default" table, or load an Excel file with parameters already
defined in it. The parameters can be changed and saved again to the Excel
spreadsheet.

When all the necessary parameters are defined in the PyQt table, simply click
"Run" to execute the Astra generator.

### Usage

The script can be executed in two ways. Both ways require some basic
information about how to run Python scripts, of course.

* Option 1: **Run script from command line**
```BASH
> python /path/to/your/pip/installation/generatorGUI/main.py
```
For instance, on my OSX I used `pip` installed by *anaconda*, such that
the packages are installed in my *anaconda* diretory. So for me:
```BASH
> python ~/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/site-packages/generatorGUI/main.py
```
* Option 2: **Import the module and run the main function**
You can also run the GUI from the Python prompt, or *Jupyter notebook*,
for instance:
```Python
>>> import generatorGUI
>>> generatorGUI.main()
```

For each of the parameters, the *type*, *unit*, and *default* have already
been defined. Do not change the values in those cells. If a parameter needs
to be modified from its default value, enter the correct value in the *set*
column.

Notice, that for *str* type, the value does not need the single quotes '
around the string; the *list_?* type asks for a list of *?* type values: e.g.
for *list_float* you can put `[1.0, 2.0, 3.0]`, just like a *Python list*,
for *list_str*, single quotes ' are not needed either: e.g. `[abc.dat, foo
.dat]`.

####A note on the parameter *fname*
Notice that by default the *generator* program will be called from the
current working directory, i.e. where you run the **main.py** script. If only
a file name is
