Browser based 3D visualization of multibody simulations.
Visualization of multibody systems generated with PyDy.
This package relies on dependencies included in the SciPy stack (i.e. NumPy and matplotlib). These packages are not necessarily easy to install from source, so it is best to follow the instructions available on the SciPy installation page.
One example of installing the setuptools, NumPy, and matplotlib dependencies for Debian based Linux systems is to install from the apt package manager:
$ apt-get install python-setuptools python-numpy python-matplotlib
Once the dependencies are installed, then download the source and install with:
$ python setup.py install
This will automatically install the latest version of the final dependency SymPy if needed.
The Python tests require nose so get them with your package manager:
$ apt-get python-nose python-coverage
$ pip install nose coverage
The tests can be run from the root directory with:
And to see more detail with coverage, run:
$ nosetests -v --with-coverage --cover-package=pydy_viz
These are alternative ways to run the Python tests:
$ bin/test $ python setup.py nosetests
$ cd pydy_viz/static/js
Then run a simple HTTP Server with Python (the server is required due to some cross browser issues with blanket.js):
$ python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Now visit http://localhost:8000/SpecRunner.html in a webgl compliant browser.
pip install sphinx numpydoc
To build the HTML docs:
$ sphinx-build -b html docs/src docs/build
$ firefox docs/build/index.html
