Most functionality was developed for the use with the DFT codes developed at the Forschungszentrum Jülich (see, and for further information on the codes) and in the context of the AiiDA plugins for the Fleur code and the KKR code.


pip install masci-tools


These python packages are needed:

  • pymatgen
  • ase
  • lxml
  • matplotlib
  • h5py

It should not depend on aiida_core!

    • Contains methods to write certain files
    • io.parsers: Contains parsers of certain code output or input files
  • tests

  • util
    • Contains rather low level utility
  • tools
    • Contains rather highlevel utility which is rather complete
  • vis
    • Contain a collection of matplotlib, pyplot, gnuplot methods used for ploting common results from material science simulations, e.g. bandsstructures, DOS, ...
