Sciris: Simplifying Scientific Python#
What is Sciris?#
Sciris is a library of tools that can help make writing scientific Python code easier and more pleasant. Built on top of NumPy and Matplotlib, Sciris provides functions covering a wide range of common math, file I/O, and plotting operations. This means you can get more done with less code, and spend less time looking things up on Stack Overflow. It was originally written to help epidemiologists and neuroscientists focus on doing science, rather than on writing coding, but Sciris is applicable across scientific domains (and some nonscientific ones too).
pip install sciris
conda install -c conda-forge sciris
Requires Python >= 3.7.
Sciris comes with an automated test suite covering all functions. You almost certainly don’t need to run these, but if you want to, go to the
tests folder and run
pytest. See the readme in that folder for more information.
