Continuous adjoint optimization wrapper for Lumerical
This is a continuous adjoint opimtization wrapper for Lumerical, using Python as the main user interface. It is released under an MIT license. It is still work in progress and any contribution will be very welcome! New features to come out soon, and make it even easier to use (hopefully)!

Tutorials, Examples, and Documentation
It is all here: https://lumopt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
Make sure you have Python 3 and the latest version of Lumerical installed (it won't work correctly with older versions), and that lumapi (the python api) works.
cd your/install/folder/ git clone https://github.com/chriskeraly/LumOpt.git python setup.py develop
I would strongly recommend using jupyter notebooks to run optimizations.
If you are not using jupyter notebooks:
cd your/install/folder/examples/Ysplitter python splitter_opt_2D.py
your/install/folder/examples/Ysplitter/splitter_opt_2D.py into a notebook
