PyPI version Supported Python versions

Helper utilities around the Scikit-HEP ecosystem for common tasks in HEP

This library is not meant for wide use and will probably be deprecated in favor of a Scikit-HEP library soon. This library should be viewed as a testing grounds for API design decisions.


In a fresh virtual environment you can install from PyPI with

python -m pip install heputils

Development releases

If you want to install unsupported development releases you can do so from TestPyPI. First install heputils like normal from PyPI to get stable releases of all dependencies

python -m pip install heputils

then install the development release of heputils from TestPyPI with the following

python -m pip install --upgrade --extra-index-url --pre heputils

which will get the release on TestPyPI that corresponds to the most recent commit on main.

You can of course also install directly from the Git repository "locally" by first cloning the repo and then from the top level of it running

python -m pip install .


As this library is experimental contributions of all forms are welcome. If you have ideas on how to improve the API or conceptually how a library meant to introduce people to the Scikit-HEP ecosystem should be structured please open an Issue. You are of course also most welcome and encouraged to open PRs.


To develop, use a virtual environment. Once the environment is activated, clone the repo from GitHub

git clone

and install all necessary packages for development

python -m pip install --ignore-installed --upgrade --editable .[complete]

Then setup the Git pre-commit hooks by running

pre-commit install


This library is built upon the hard work of many people in the Scikit-HEP ecosystem and is only possible because of the exchange of ideas and contributions of people working together, across experiments and fields to improve science. This is not an inevitability, but rather the result of directed thought, time, and effort, to which I am most thankful to have benefited from and have been involved in.
