Scientific Python package for Simulation Output Analysis

Project description

A Scientific Python package for Simulation Output Analysis

Documentation Status License

Requirements and Python 2/3 compatibility

This package runs under Python 2 and Python 3, and has been tested with Python 2.7.6 and Python 3.4.0.


See the LICENSE file.


Development environment

Use tox to prepare virtual environments for development.

To set up a Python 2.7 environment in .devenv27, run:

$ tox -e devenv27

To set up a Python 3.4 environment in .devenv34, run:

$ tox -e devenv34


This package uses setuptools.


$ python sdist


$ python bdist


$ python bdist_wheel

to build a source, binary or wheel distribution.

Complete Git Integration

Setuptool uses the information of tags to infer the version of your project with the help of versioneer.

To use this feature you need to tag with the format MAJOR.MINOR[.REVISION] , e.g. v0.0.1 or v0.1. The prefix v is needed!


$ python version

to retrieve the current PEP440-compliant version. This version will be used when building a package and is also accessible through devs.__version__. The version will be unknown until you have added a first tag.

Pre-commit hooks

Unleash the power of Git by using its pre-commit hooks.


$ pre-commit install

to install the pre-commit hooks.

Sphinx Documentation

Build the documentation with

$ python docs

and run doctests with

$ python doctest

Alternatively, let tox configure the virtual environment and run sphinx:

$ tox -e docs

Add further options separated from tox options by a double dash --:

$ tox -e docs -- --help

Read the Docs hosts the project at

Add requirements for building the documentation to the requirements-doc.txt file.

Continuous documentation building

For continuously building the documentation during development, run:

$ python autodocs

Unittest & Coverage


$ python test

to run all unittests defined in the subfolder tests with the help of tox and py.test.

The py.test plugin pytest-cov is used to automatically generate a coverage report.

Continuous testing

For continuous testing in a Python 2.7 environment, run:

$ python2 test --tox-args='-c toxdev.ini -e py27'

For continuous testing in a Python 3.4 environment, run:

$ python3 test --tox-args='-c toxdev.ini -e py34'

Requirements Management

Add requirements to the requirements.txt file which will be automatically used by


A CiteULike group manages the bibliography.
