DynamicistToolKit 0.3.0

Various tools for theoretical and experimental dynamics.

Latest Version: 0.3.2


This is a collection of Python modules which contain tools that are helpful for a dynamicist. Right now it is basically a place I place general tools that don't necessarily need a distribution of their own.


Generic tools for basic bicycle dynamics analysis.
Various functions for calculating and manipulating inertial quantities.
Various tools for common signal processing tasks.


You will need Python 2.7 and setuptools to install the packages. Its best to install the dependencies first (NumPy, SciPy, matplotlib, Pandas). The SciPy Stack instructions are helpful for this:

You can install using pip (or easy_install). Pip will theoretically [1] get the dependencies for you (or at least check if you have them):

$ pip install DynamicistToolKit

Or download the source with your preferred method and install manually.

Using Git:

$ git clone
$ cd DynamicistToolKit

Or wget:

$ wget
$ unzip
$ cd DynamicistToolKit-master

Then for basic installation:

$ python install

Or install for development purposes:

$ python develop
[1]You will need all build dependencies and also note that matplotlib doesn't play nice with pip.


Run the tests with nose:

$ nosetests


A vagrant file and provisioning script are included to test the code on an Ubuntu 13.10 box. To load the box and run the tests simply type:

$ vagrant up

See and VagrantFile to see what's going on.


The documentation is hosted at ReadTheDocs:

You can build the documentation (currently sparse) if you have Sphinx and numpydoc:

$ cd docs
$ make html
$ firefox _build/html/index.html
