CRootBox became CPlantBox

CRootBox is not longer developed, it grew into CPlantBox.

CPlantBox is fully backward compatible CRootBox, offering a RootSystem only class, but can additionally simulate the plant shoot and leafs, enabeling even more complex functional plant models.

For the a description of the root system modelling please refer to tutorial/latex/RootBox.

CRootBox

The fastest way to try CRootBox is to read the tutorial and look at the examples in C++ or Python.

For C++ just uncomment the desired example in the examples/main.cpp file, compile and run it.

cmake .
make
cd examples && ./test_crootbox

cmake . runs CMake which configures the CRootBox libraries. make builds the libraries and the C++ example. cd examples && ./test_crootbox runs the example.

Folder sructure

/docs CRootbox website
/examples Some C++ examples how to use the CRootBox
/external External libraries
/modelparameter Some root parameter, and plant parameter files
/python Python examples
/results Nice result images
/scripts Pyhthon scripts for visualization with Paraview, and Matlab scripts for parameter export
/src CRootBox C++ codes
/test Test

Documentation

Create the documentation by running doxygen in the folder $ doxygen doxy_config

The documentation should now be located in the folder /doc

Python bindings

A Python library is automatically built by CMake if Python 3 and boost-python is installed on your system.
