With PyChimera you can…

  • Run scripts depending on chimera from CLI with pychimera script.py.
  • Enable import chimera in interactive coding sessions outside UCSF Chimera, including IPython and Jupyter Notebooks.
  • Launch a standard UCSF Chimera instance, with the benefit of importing all your conda or virtualenv packages with pychimera --gui.

I hope it’s useful! Feedback is appreciated!
