phys2bids is a python3 library meant to format physiological files in BIDS. It was born for AcqKnowledge files (BIOPAC), and at the moment it supports .acq files as well as .txt files obtained by labchart (ADInstruments) and GE MRI files.

If you use phys2bids in your work, please support it by citing the zenodo DOI of the version you used. You can find the latest version here

We also support gathering all relevant citations via DueCredit.

Tested OSs

While all version until 2.6.2 were tested on Linux and Windows, starting from version 2.7 onward we had to drop Windows testing. The reason is related to the cost of running such tests: for each Windows test, we can run up to 8 tests on Linux instead. Partial Windows testing might be reintroduced in future releases.

Hence, while we cannot ensure that phys2bids will run on Windows, however we don't see any reason it shouldn't. Besides, it will run on Linux Subsistems.

We apologise for the discomfort.

We're looking for code contributors, but any suggestion/bug report is welcome! Feel free to open issues!

This project follows the all-contributors specification. Contributions of any kind welcome!
