An open source community developed Python 3.6+ package for plasma physics in the early stages of development. PlasmaPy intends to be for plasmas what Astropy is for astronomy - a collection of functionality commonly used and shared between plasma physicists and researchers globally, running within and leveraging the open source scientific Python ecosystem. The goals of this project are more thoroughly described in our vision statement and an earlier conference poster.
If you have any questions, please send us a message at our Riot/Gitter channel or contact Nick Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org, Yi-Min Huang at email@example.com, or Drew Leonard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get PlasmaPy from pip via
pip install plasmapy. To work on the package, check out our instructions on installing PlasmaPy from source.
We're not on Conda yet, but we're working on it!
Like most scientific Python packages, PlasmaPy probably runs best on the Anaconda distribution.
PlasmaPy requires Python 3.6 and is not compatible with Python 2.
