Geometry and visualization tools for collections of particles
Plato is designed for efficient visualization of particle data. Think of it sort of like matplotlib, but being less focused on 2D plotting.
Plato is available on PyPI for installation via pip:
$ pip install plato-draw
You can also install plato from source, like this:
$ git clone https://github.com/glotzerlab/plato.git $ # now install $ cd plato && python setup.py install
Depending on which backends you want to use, there may be additional steps required; see the section on interactive backends below.
Using Interactive Backends
Plato contains a number of backends, each with its own set of dependencies. Getting the vispy backend working for both the desktop and jupyter notebook can be tricky. Make sure to check the official vispy documentation. We also keep some advice here regarding particular known-good versions of dependencies for pip and conda.
The documentation is available as standard sphinx documentation:
$ cd doc $ make html
Automatically-built documentation is available at https://plato-draw.readthedocs.io .
