What is pywerami

pywerami is a stand-alone program to make an countour/3D plot from data file generated by the Perple_X program WERAMI or tci file generated by TCInvestigator.


You need Python 3.6 or later to run pywerami. The package requires NumPy and SciPy, and the plotting routines require Matplotlib.

Quick start

pywerami can be installed using pip:

pip install pywerami

If you want tu run the latest version of code, you can install it from git:

pip install git+git://

Alternatively, you can download the package manually from the GitHub repository, unzip it, navigate into the package, and use the command:

python install

Upgrading via pip

To upgrade an existing version of APSG from PyPI, execute

pip install pywerami --upgrade --no-deps

Please note that the dependencies (Matplotlib, NumPy and SciPy) will also be upgraded if you omit the --no-deps flag; use the --no-deps ("no dependencies") flag if you don't want this.

Installing pywerami from the source distribution

In rare cases, users reported problems on certain systems with the default pip installation command, which installs pywerami from the binary distribution ("wheels") on PyPI. If you should encounter similar problems, you could try to install pywerami from the source distribution instead via

pip install --no-binary :all: pywerami

Also, I would appreciate it if you could report any issues that occur when using pip install pywerami in hope that we can fix these in future releases.
