Project description


Small set of tools and functions for scientific code and scripts.



pip install sciscripttools

Build from Source

git clone
cd sciscripttools
python install



An example to get started with the IO tools. It can save relatively basic python objects, such a values, strings, arrays, and dictionaries of those items.

import sciscripttools as st

power = [4,5,6]
st.save_data("power_exp_01", power) # save a value, arrary, or dictionary

exp_info = {"id": 20200117, "wire_r" : 0.005, 
            "lengths_1": [0.1, 0.5, 1.5]}
st.save_data("exp_01", exp_info, directory="data/")

w1 = [0.1, 0.5, 1.5]
w2 = [0.1, 0.3, 1.7]
w3 = [0.1, 0.6, 1.2]
radii = st.create_dictionary("w1",w1, "w2", w2, "w3", w3)
st.save_data("radii", radii)

Load the previous saved data with

import sciscripttools as st

exp_info = st.load_dictionary("exp_01", directory="data/")
keys, radii = st.load_data("radii", keys = ["w1", "w3"]) # load straight into arrays
power = st.load_item("power_exp_01")


An example to get started with the plotting tools. Note: standard_font class and the unit functions of the standard_figure class require LaTeX!

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import sciscripttools as st

# data
x = np.linspace(0, 2)
y = x + np.random.rand(len(x))
y2 = x + np.random.rand(len(x))

# figure

fig_params = st.figure_parameters() # generate parameters
st.standard_font(font_size = fig_params.font_size) # standarise the font

# normal matplotlib plotting
fig, axes = plt.subplots(1, 2, sharey = True) # create matplotlib figure
ax1, ax2 = axes

# plot data
ax1.plot(x, y)
ax2.plot(x, y2)
for ax in axes:
    ax.set_ylim(0, 3) 

fig.subplots_adjust(wspace = fig_params.adjust_subplot_wspace) # set subplot width spacing
sf = st.standard_figure(fig, axes, fig_params) # create standard_figure

# add units
ylabel = "Power"; yunit = "\\watt"
sf.ylabel(ax1, ylabel, yunit)
xlabel = "Time"; xunit = "\\second"
sf.xlabel(axes, xlabel, xunit)
