Python interface openems and CSXCAD installation on UBUNTU

Post by sajeed.mulla » Mon 01 May 2017, 08:37

Hello sir,
I want to build Python interface openEMS and CSXCAD on Ubuntu 16.04 . I refered the instructions that are given on your website but couldn't install.

Hi,

please Note: The python interface is still highly experimental and not yet officially released and not even finished, stable or complete!

I was not aware that I wrote instructions (yet) anywhere? To which are you referring?
Did you checkout the latest git master branches?
Did you successfully install "normally" ? E.g. using the update shell script?
If that all worked fine and openEMS runs normally.
You need some python dependencies and cython.
Then you may try the approach here: https://github.com/thliebig/CSXCAD/tree/master/python
and then (if successful) here: https://github.com/thliebig/openEMS/tree/master/python

But these are not really tested instructions. What I need to do someday is to setup a clean distro (probably a VM) and figure this all out myself.

regards
Thorsten

Respected sir,
I refered following link to build the Python interface.
Installation was unsuccessful.

GitHub - thliebig/openEMS: openEMS is a free and open-source ...

When. Python openEMS module will be launched?

Installation was unsuccessful.
Well as I said, I do not have (at this time) a comprehensive and tested installation instruction...
GitHub - thliebig/openEMS: openEMS is a free and open-source ...
I'm not sure what you want to say with this quote, but yes, you are of course free to play around with the new interface.
With not "officially released" I just mean, that I do not really support using it at this time.
When. Python openEMS module will be launched?
I really do not know, whenever I find time and feel like it I work on it. But currently progress is slow...

If you want to use openEMS, I really recommend you have a closer look at the existing and well tested Matlab/Octave interface.
You can use it with free software only as well ...

regards
Thorsten

Respected sir

Currently I am using matlab/octave interface.
It nicely works, thank you for such a nice tool. I am doing my research work using this tool.

But I am too much aware with Python.
