Python suite to access, manipulate and plot ALaDyn's datas

Project description


LAMPy (Light and fast Aladyn data Manipulation in Python) is a python package that provides modules to access and plot ALaDyn output files.

The idea behind its development is to provide a selfconsistent and portable environment, allowing any user to elaborate ALaDyn simulations results. Other possibility are also available (C++ data converters, gnuplot analysis, IDL routines), but they are mostly single file analyzers. With LAMPy, we would like to offer a fast and modern way to perform a complete inline data analysis, taking advantage of the simplicity of the Python language which requires a minimum effort even for a beginner user.


LAMPy is still under development, which means problems may occur for some untested output configuration. The recommended Python version for LAMPy is Python 3.7. Tests on previous versions are ongoing.


First, you should get a Python distribution, such as Anaconda. You could also use a system installation of Python, however, due to the portability of Anaconda and it's ability to manage different environments, we recommend it as a preferred option, in particular for beginner users.

Create a Python 3.7 environment, if it's not the default one', by typing

conda create -n py3 python=3.7

To install LAMPy, you can build it from the source code, or you can download the latest stable version from Pypi, installing it via pip

pip install lampy

Build LAMPy from source

To build LAMPy from source, you must run the following commands

  • python build_clib that compiles the C libraries needed to read the data files using a system C compiler,
  • python develop that builds the cython and python sources and installs the package in the $PYTHONENV.
