**Utilities to set up and analyze Modelica simulation experiments**

ModelicaRes is a free, open-source tool to conveniently manage Modelica_
simulations, interpret results, and create publishable figures. It is possible
to

- auto-generate simulation scripts,
- browse data,
- perform custom calculations,
- produce various plots and diagrams, and
- export data to various formats via pandas_.

The figures are generated via matplotlib_, which offers a rich set of plotting
routines. ModelicaRes includes functions to automatically pre-format and label
some figures, like xy plots, Bode and Nyquist plots, and Sankey diagrams.
ModelicaRes can be scripted or used in an interactive Python_ session with math
and matrix functions from NumPy_.

Please see the tutorial, which is available as an `IPython notebook
<https: github.com="" kdavies4="" modelicares="" blob="" master="" examples="" tutorial.ipynb="">`_
or online as a `static page
<http: nbviewer.ipython.org="" github="" kdavies4="" modelicares="" blob="" master="" examples="" tutorial.ipynb="">`_.
For the full documentation and many more examples, see the `main website`_.

Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The easiest way to install this package is to use pip_::

pip install modelicares

On Linux, it may be necessary to have root privileges::

sudo pip install modelicares

Another way is to download and extract a copy of the package. The `main
website`_ and the `release branch at GitHub`_ have copies with built
documentation and compiled examples. The copy on the `PyPI page`_ only has the
files to install the package, build the documentation, and execute the examples.
Once you have a copy, run the following command from the base folder::

python setup.py install

Or, on Linux::

sudo python setup.py install

Some of the required packages may not install automatically.

- The SciPy_ stack, including matplotlib_ and pandas_, can be installed
according to the instructions at http://www.scipy.org/install.html
- PyQt4_ can be downloaded from
http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/pyqt/download
- wxPython_ can be downloaded from http://www.wxpython.org/download.php
However, it is only required for the `variable browser
<http: kdavies4.github.io="" modelicares="" simres.html#modelicares.simres.simres.browse="">`_.

The *matplotlibrc* file in the base folder has some recommended revisions to
matplotlib_'s defaults. To use it, copy it to the working directory or
matplotlib_'s configuration directory. See
http://matplotlib.org/users/customizing.html for details.
