Gmsh app and SDK installer. Gmsh is a three-dimensional finite element mesh generator with built-in pre- and post-processing facilities.

Project description

Gmsh is an automatic three-dimensional finite element mesh generator with built-in pre- and post-processing facilities.

The aim of this package is to download and install the official Gmsh app and binary Software Development Kit (SDK) in a pythonic way, i.e. via the pip command.

Installation should work under Linux, Windows and macOS for both Python 2 and 3.

Before installation make sure that possibly conflicting gmsh-dev, gmsh-sdk or gmsh-sdk-git are uninstalled:

$ pip uninstall gmsh-dev gmsh-sdk gmsh-sdk-git

Then install (or upgrade) gmsh:

$ pip install --upgrade gmsh

This can take a few seconds to a few minutes depending on your network connection, as the installer downloads the binary files for your architecture from https://gmsh.info.

After installation you can either run the Gmsh app:

$ gmsh

or use the Gmsh Python API:

$ python -c "import gmsh; gmsh.initialize(); gmsh.fltk.run(); gmsh.finalize()"

(Note that the header files for using the C++ and C API are also installed, as is the Julia module.)
