Complete pipeline for easy data fitting with Python.

Built from makenew/python-package.

## Description

Complete pipeline for easy data fitting with Python 3.

Check out the example fits on Fitalyzer. See the Fitalyzer README for details on how to use Fitalyzer for visualizing your fits.

## Installation

This package is registered on the Python Package Index (PyPI) as scipy_data_fitting.

Add this line to your application’s requirements.txt

scipy_data_fitting

and install it with

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

If you are writing a Python package which will depend on this,
add this to your requirements in `setup.py`.

Alternatively, install it directly using pip with

$ pip install scipy_data_fitting

## Documentation

Documentation is generated from source with pdoc. The latest version is hosted at pythonhosted.org/scipy-data_fitting/.

To get started quickly, check out the examples.

Then, refer to the source documentation for details on how to use each class.

## Basic Usage

from scipy_data_fitting import Data, Model, Fit, Plot # Load data from a CSV file. data = Data('linear') data.path = 'linear.csv' data.error = (0.5, None) # Create a linear model. model = Model('linear') model.add_symbols('t', 'v', 'x_0') t, v, x_0 = model.get_symbols('t', 'v', 'x_0') model.expressions['line'] = v * t + x_0 # Create the fit using the data and model. fit = Fit('linear', data=data, model=model) fit.expression = 'line' fit.independent = {'symbol': 't', 'name': 'Time', 'units': 's'} fit.dependent = {'name': 'Distance', 'units': 'm'} fit.parameters = [ {'symbol': 'v', 'guess': 1, 'units': 'm/s'}, {'symbol': 'x_0', 'value': 1, 'units': 'm'}, ] # Save the fit result to a json file. fit.to_json(fit.name + '.json', meta=fit.metadata) # Save a plot of the fit to an image file. plot = Plot(fit) plot.save(fit.name + '.svg') plot.close()

### Controlling the fitting process

The above example will fit the line using the default algorithm
`scipy.optimize.curve_fit`.

For a linear fit, it may be more desirable to use a more efficient algorithm.

For example, to use `numpy.polyfit`, one could set a
`fit_function` and allow both parameters to vary,

fit.parameters = [ {'symbol': 'v', 'guess': 1, 'units': 'm/s'}, {'symbol': 'x_0', 'guess': 1, 'units': 'm'}, ] fit.options['fit_function'] = \ lambda f, x, y, p0, **op: (numpy.polyfit(x, y, 1), )

Controlling the fitting process this way allows, for example, incorporating error values and computing and returning goodness of fit information.

See `scipy_data_fitting.Fit.options` for further details on how to
control the fit and also how to use lmfit.
