ipython_ferretmagic

IPython notebook extension for ferret (a great software for Data Visualisation and Analysis from NOAA/PMEL).

Browse the demo notebooks from http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/PBrockmann/ipython_ferretmagic/tree/master/notebooks

Combine ferret and ipython widgets and create interactive notebooks !

Test it with binder. Binder

Installation

Install PyFerret following instructions from http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/Ferret/documentation/pyferret It will set all directories needed to run pyferret (font, ppl, jnls, datasets, ...).

You can also install PyFerret as a conda package from https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/pyferret (no datasets distributed).

Then install the ferret magic extension (ferretmagic.py) by typing pip install ferretmagic

Usage

In a Jupyter notebook with kernel python (previously named ipython), load the magics:

In [2]: %load_ext ferretmagic

Line magics

The %ferret_run magic enables one-line execution of ferret command in the IPython interpreter or notebook:

    In [3]: for i in [100,500,1000]:
      ....: 	%ferret_run -s 400,400 'plot sin(i[i=1:%(i)s]*0.1)' % locals()

Cell magics

Multi-line input can be entered with the %%ferret cell magic:

In [4]: %%ferret
  ....: use levitus_climatology
  ....: shade temp[k=1]			! comments
  • Control size of plot with --size, -s option.
  • Create a local pdf at the same time with --pdf, -p option.
In [5]: %%ferret -s 400,300 -pdf myfig.pdf
  ....: shade temp[k=1]			

Passing variables between Python and ferret

  • Variables can be pushed from IPython into ferret with %ferret_putdata:
In [18]: %%ferret
   ....: use levitus_climatology
In [19]: %ferret_getdata tempdict = temp
   ....: Message: tempdict is now available in python as a dictionary containing the variable's metadata and data array.
In [20]: print tempdict.keys()
   ....: ['axis_coords', 'axis_types', 'data_unit', 'axis_units', 'title', 'axis_names', 'missing_value', 'data']
  • Variables can be pulled from ferret into IPython with %ferret_getdata:
In [31]: import numpy as np
   ....: b = {}
   ....: b['name']='myvar'
   ....: b['name']='myvar'
   ....: x=np.linspace(-np.pi*4, np.pi*4, 500)
   ....: b['data']=np.sin(x)/x
   ....: b.keys()
Out[31]: ['data', 'name']
In [32]: %ferret_putdata --axis_pos (1,0,2,3,4,5) b
   ....: Message: b is now available in ferret as myvar
