Wavepy kernel library

Project description


wavepy is Python library for data analyses of coherence and wavefront measurements at synchrotron beamlines. Currently it covers: single-grating Talbot interferometry, speckle tracking, and scan of Talbot peaks for coherence analysis.


We kindly request that you cite the following articles if you use wavepy.

  • List here the features.


The following libraries should be installed in your system:


>>> python3 -m pip install wavepy

Installation as Developer

Syncing with git


You need to have git installed


>>> git clone

Update your local installation

>>> git pull

To make git to store your credentials

>>> git config credential.helper store

Solving dependencies with conda


You need to have anaconda or miniconda installed

Creating conda enviroment

>>> conda create -n ENV_NAME python=3.5 numpy=1.11  scipy=0.17 matplotlib=1.5 spyder=2.3.9 --yes



Solving dependencies

Activate the enviroment:

>>> source activate ENV_NAME



>>> conda install scikit-image=0.12 --yes
>>> conda install -c dgursoy dxchange --yes
>>> pip install cffi
>>> pip install unwrap
>>> pip install tqdm
>>> pip install termcolor
>>> pip install easygui_qt


unwrap needs cffi, tqdm is used for progress bar

Adding Recomended packages

>>> conda install -c dgursoy xraylib

Additional Settings

easygui_qt conflicts with the Qt backend of matplotlib. The workaround is to change the backend to TkAgg. This can be in the matplotlibrc file (instructions here). In Spyder this is done in Tools->Preferences->Console->External Modules, where we set GUI backend to TkAgg
