README.md

Python module for reading and writing GRIB files (edition 1 and edition 2).

GRIB is the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) standard file format for the exchange of weather data.

Provides a interfaces for the ECWMF GRIB_API C library and the NCEP grib2 C library, including command line utilities for listing (grib_list) and repacking (grib_repack) GRIB files.

Quickstart:

  • Clone the github repository, or download a source release from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pygrib.

  • Copy setup.cfg.template to setup.cfg, open in text editor, follow instructions in comments for editing. If you are using the new eccodes library instead of the old grib_api library, be sure to uncomment the last line setup.cfg.

  • Run 'python setup.py build'

  • Run 'python setup.py install' (with sudo if necessary)

  • Run 'python test.py' to test your pygrib installation.
