Metapackage of Scikit-HEP project tools for Particle Physics.

Project description

Project info

The Scikit-HEP project is a community-driven and community-oriented project with the aim of providing Particle Physics at large with an ecosystem for data analysis in Python embracing all major topics involved in a physicist’s work. The project started in Autumn 2016 and its packages are actively developed and maintained.

It is not just about providing core and common tools for the community. It is also about improving the interoperability between HEP tools and the Big Data scientific ecosystem in Python, and about improving on discoverability of utility packages and projects.

For what concerns the project grand structure, it should be seen as a toolset rather than a toolkit.

Getting in touch

There are various ways to get in touch with project admins and/or users and developers.

scikit-hep package

scikit-hep is a metapackage for the Scikit-HEP project.


You can install this metapackage from PyPI with pip:

or you can use Conda through conda-forge:

conda install -c conda-forge scikit-hep

All the normal best-practices for Python apply; you should be in a virtual environment, etc.
