A simple library for gro files

Project Description

A library to handle the reading and writing of a gro file.


pip install groio


import groio

#Read a gro file
title, atoms, box = groio.parse_file("filin.gro")

#Write a gro file
with open("filout.gro", "w") as f:
    for line in groio.write_gro(title, output_atoms, box):
        print(line, end='', file=f)

#Renumber the atoms to avoid number above 100 000
atoms = groio.renumber(atoms)

The function parse_file returns :

  • title: the title of the system as written on line 1 of the file as a string
  • atoms: a list of atom, each atom is stored as a dictionary
  • box: the box description as written on the last line as a string
