Project description

qa4sm_reader is a python package to read and plot the result files of the qa4sm service.


This package should be installable through pip (not yet tough, see development):

pip install qa4sm_reader


This package is used to analyze a qa4sm netCDF output file and produce all relevant plots and maps.

Development Setup

The project was setup using pyscaffold and closely follows the recommendations.

Install Dependencies

For Development we recommend creating a conda environment.

cd qa4sm-reader
conda env create #  create environment from requirements.rst
conda activate qa4sm-reader
python develop #  Links the code to the environment

To remove the environment again, run:

conda deactivate
conda env remove -n qa4sm_reader

Code Formatting

To apply pep8 conform styling to any changed files [we use yapf]( The correct settings are already set in setup.cfg. Therefore the following command should be enough:

yapf --in-place


For testing, we use py.test:


The dependencies are automatically installed by pytest-runner when you run the tests. The test-dependencies are listed in the testing field inside the [options.extras_require] section of setup.cfg. For some reasons, the dependencies are not installed as expected. To workaround, do:

pip install pytest-cov

The files used for testing are included in this package. They are however subject to other terms and conditions.

Known Issues

No known issues - please open an issue in case you come across a malfunctioning in the package.
