A package for communicating with FORM

Project Description

This package provides a mechanism to embed FORM [1] [2] [3] programs in Python code. The basic idea of the implementation is the same as FormLink [4]: it utilizes unnamed pipes between FORM and an external program [5], Python in this case. It is expected to work on Unix-like systems.


$ pip install python-form

or directly from GitHub for the latest development version:

$ pip install git+

See also the documentation for pip install.


import form

with as f:
        AutoDeclare Vector p;
        Local F = g_(0,p1,...,p6);


python-form is distributed under the MIT licence. See the LICENCE file.

Note that FORM itself adopts the GPL version 3. A program/package using FORM via python-form could be considered as an aggregate (at your own risk) or a combined work affected by the GPL.
