'uttrs' seeks to interoperate Classes definided using attrs and 'astropy units' in a simple manner.
uttrs seeks to interoperate Classes definided using attrs and astropy units in a simple manner.
uttrs is mainly three functions:
uttr.ibwhich generates attributes sensitive to units.
uttr.array_accessorwhich allows access to attributes linked to units, and transform them into numpy arrays.
uttr.sa class decorator to automatically add the

Uttrs is under The BSD-3 License
The BSD 3-clause license allows you almost unlimited freedom with the software so long as you include the BSD copyright and license notice in it (found in Fulltext).
This is the recommended way to install uttrs.
Installing with pip
Make sure that the Python interpreter can load uttrs code. The most convenient way to do this is to use virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper, and pip.
After setting up and activating the virtualenv, run the following command:
$ pip install uttrs ...
That should be it all.
Installing the development version
If you’d like to be able to update your uttrs code occasionally with the latest bug fixes and improvements, follow these instructions:
Make sure that you have Git installed and that you can run its commands from a shell. (Enter git help at a shell prompt to test this.)
Check out uttrs main development branch like so:
$ git clone https://github.com/quatrope/uttrs ...
This will create a directory uttrs in your current directory.
Then you can proceed to install with the commands
$ cd uttrs $ pip install -e . ...

The following piece of code is an example prototype of a Class representing a Galaxy. The Galaxy contains:
- three arrays (
z) with particle positions, measured in kiloparsecs (
- three arrays (
vz) for the particle velocities, measured in Km/s (
- an array (
m) of particle masses, expressed in solar masses (
- a free text for note taking in
In every case we would like to access to position, velocity and mass of the particles, with and without units (as
Suggested units in the information of the attributes behave like this:
- If the user makes the class instance without unit specification then default assumed unit is used.
- If, otherwise, another unit is used as input, it is validated the feasibility of the conversion to default unit.

Simple interaction with
We can access all the same attributes declared with
uttr.ib but coerced to the default unit as numpy array.
>>> gal.arr_.y array([0.00809345, 0.00219855, 0.00546479, 0.00186072, 0.00363664])
The above code is equivalent to
>>> gal.y.to_value(u.kpc) array([0.00809345, 0.00219855, 0.00546479, 0.00186072, 0.00363664])
Equivalent units errors
If we change the unit to something not equivalent to the default unit
uttr.ib an exception is raised.
Lets fot example define
x as a kilogram (
>>> gal = Galaxy( ... x = x * u.kg, # kg is not equivalent to kpc ... y = y, ... z = z, ... vx = vx, ... vy = vy, ... vz = vz, ... m = m, ... notes="a random galaxy made with random numbers") ValueError: Unit of attribute 'x' must be equivalent to 'kpc'.Found 'kg'.
