Ecosystem for digital reticular chemistry

Project description

Tests PyPI PyPI - Python Version PyPI - License Documentation Status </ <a href=''> Code style: black Matsci Commitizen friendly

Featurizing metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) made simple! This package builds on the power of matminer to make featurization of MOFs as easy as possible. Now, you can use features that are mostly used for porous materials in the same way as all other matminer featurizers. mofdscribe additionally includes routines that help with model validation.

💪 Getting Started

from mofdscribe.featurizers.chemistry import RACS
from pymatgen.core import Structure

structure = Structure.from_file(<my_cif.cif>)
featurizer = RACS()
racs_features = featurizer.featurize(structure)

🚀 Installation

While we are in the process of trying to make mofdscribe work on all operating system (we're waiting for conda recipies getting merged), it is currently not easy on Windows (and there might be potential issues on ARM-based Macs). For this reason, we recommend installing mofdscribe on a UNIX machine.

To install in development mode, use the following:

git clone git+
cd mofdscribe
pip install -e .

if you want to use all utilities, you can use the all extra: pip install -e ".[all]"

We depend on many other external tools. Most external tools are automatically installed if you install mofdscribe via conda:

conda install -c conda-forge mofdscribe

🛠️ For Developers

See developer instructions

The final section of the README is for if you want to get involved by making a code contribution.

❓ Testing

After cloning the repository and installing tox with pip install tox, the unit tests in the tests/ folder can be run reproducibly with:


Additionally, these tests are automatically re-run with each commit in a GitHub Action.

📦 Making a Release

After installing the package in development mode and installing tox with pip install tox, the commands for making a new release are contained within the finish environment in tox.ini. Run the following from the shell:

tox -e finish

This script does the following:

  1. Uses BumpVersion to switch the version number in the setup.cfg and src/mofdscribe/ to not have the -dev suffix
  2. Packages the code in both a tar archive and a wheel
  3. Uploads to PyPI using twine. Be sure to have a .pypirc file configured to avoid the need for manual input at this step
  4. Push to GitHub. You'll need to make a release going with the commit where the version was bumped.
  5. Bump the version to the next patch. If you made big changes and want to bump the version by minor, you can use tox -e bumpversion minor after.
