Ultrafast electron diffraction data exploration
Iris - Ultrafast Electron Scattering Data Exploration
Iris is both a library for interacting with ultrafast electron diffraction data, as well as a GUI frontend for interactively exploring this data.
Iris also includes a plug-in manager so that you can explore your data.
To interact with
iris datasets from a Python environment, the
iris package must be installed.
iris is available on PyPI; it can be installed with pip.:
python -m pip install iris-ued
iris is also available on the conda-forge channel:
conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda install iris-ued
To install the latest development version from Github:
python -m pip install git+git://github.com/LaurentRDC/iris-ued.git
Each version is tested against Python 3.8+. If you are using a different
version, tests can be run using the
For Windows, installers are available on the Releases page. You will still need to install
conda to use the scripting functionality.
Once installed, the package can be imported as
The GUI component can be launched from a command line interpreter as
python -m iris or
pythonw -m iris (no console window). See the documentation
for a visual guide.
The Documentation on readthedocs.io provides API-level documentation, as well as tutorials.
