Otter post-processing tool

Project description

pyotter - The post-processing package for Otter

This is the post-processing package for use with Otter - please see the main Otter repo for details.

Getting Started


The following dependencies should be installed before installing pyotter:

Installing pyotter

To install pyotter from github:

git clone && cd pyotter
git checkout dev
pip install .

To install from PyPi:

pip install pyotter

Using pyotter

To process an Otter trace with pyotter and produce a report:

python3 -m otter path/to/anchor-file.otf2 --report my-report-name

This will create a folder ./my-report-name containing the report output. If the folder already exists, pyotter will fail unless the --force option is specified.

The --logdir and --loglevel options control where log files are created and the verbosity of logging.


Contributions are welcome! If you would like to contribute, please fork the repository and branch from the latest tag. There is no specific style guide, although I would be grateful if you could code in a style consistent with that of the main project.
