pythutils: a collection of utility functions for Python

Project description


A collection of utility functions for Python


To install the latest release of pythutils, open a terminal window and enter:

pip install pythutils

To install the latest development version, enter:

pip install git+ --upgrade


pythutils is both Python 2.7 and 3 compatible and has numpy, pyyaml, pandas, and h5py as dependencies that will be automatically installed. Note that this can take very long (up to an hour) with pip on older machines and python versions and faster will be to manually install with apt-get.


To use the various utility functions, e.g.:

from pythutils.timeutils import clock
from pythutils.fileutils import listfiles
from pythutils.mathutils import points_to_angle
from pythutils.sysutils import isrpi


pythutils is developed by Dr Jolle Jolles at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, Konstanz, Germany.

For an overview of version changes see the CHANGELOG and for detailed changes see the commits page.
