Cycamore : The CYClus Additional MOdules REpository
Additional modules for the Cyclus nuclear fuel cycle simulator from the University of Wisconsin - Madison are intended to support innovative fuel cycle simulations with the Cyclus fuel cycle simulator.
This README is intended primarily for those who intend to contribute to the development of Cycamore archetypes. If you are interested in Cyclus as a user or in developing your own Cyclus archetyes, you may want to consult Getting Started with Cyclus.
- This README provides basic information about:
- the dependency required by Cycamore
- installation of Cycamore from the command line
- how to run Cycamore unit tests
Although Cycamore is meant to enable a basic fuel cycle simulation, you may want more functionality than it offers. Third party modules can also be installed (or developed) with additional facilities. Please visit the Cyclus website for a list of contributed modules.
- For general information about Cyclus, visit the Cyclus Homepage,
- For detailed installation instructions, visit the INSTALLATION Guide,
- To see user and developer documentation for this code, please visit the Users Guide,
- If you would like to contribute to Cycamore, please check our Contribution Guidelines.
Cycamore's only dependency is the Cyclus Core.
There are a number of ways to install the Cyclus core:
- To install from source code, see the Cyclus Core repository
- To install from a binary distribution, see the instructions for Installing Cyclus from Binaries
Assuming you have the dependencies installed correctly, installing Cyclus using github is fairly straightforward:
- Clone the Cyclus Repo:
git clone https://github.com/cyclus/cycamore.git,
- to install Cyclus locally (in
~/.local/) just run:
python install.pyfrom cycamore folder,
- finally, add the following Cyclus installation path (
~/.local/cyclus) to the bottom on your
For more detailed installation procedure, and/or custom installation please refer to the INSTALLATION guide.
Installing Cycamore will also install a test driver (i.e., an executable of all of our tests). You can run the tests yourself via:
We happily welcome new developers into the Cyclus Developer Team. If you are willing to contribute into Cyclus, please follow this procedure:
- Fork Cycamore repository,
- Create a working branch on you fork from the develop branch,
- Implement your modification of the Cycamore source code,
- Submit a Pull request into Cycamore/develop branch,
- Wait for reviews/merge (the Puller cannot be the Merger).
