A collection of archery-focused calculation methods

Project description


pybow is a Python library collecting calculation methods related to archery.


pybow aims to (eventually) be a comprehensive collection of tools for archaeologists, data scientists, and maths-headed archery and bowyery enthusiasts.

To this end, pybow provides the pb.Bow object as a convenient way to describe bows by their measurements and bundled metadata, as well as implementations of analysis methods from scientific literature for easy reuse.

Eventually, the collection of methods shall be expanded, and complemented by tools helping in bow construction.

Implemented Methods and Tools
