An extension module for yt, adding a frontend for Idefix

Project description


PyPI PyPI yt-project

CI status Code style: black Imports: isort

A maturing yt frontend for Idefix and Pluto (vtk), packaged as an extension for yt. This frontend is a candidate for integration in the core yt code base.


pip install yt_idefix


After importing yt itself, make sure to activate the extension

import yt
import yt_idefix

Now yt.load will be able to read Pluto/Idefix .vtk output files, as well as Idefix .dmp dump files.

Strecthed grids support

yt_idefix ships a specialized loader function for datasets with streched grids yt_idefix.load_stretched. This function is experimental. Here are its known limitations.

  • no field magic (no aliasing, or dimensionalization, or automatic derived field generation)
  • no lazy loading (all data has to reside in memory)
  • projections are not supported
  • only supports vtk outputs (not dumps)
