OpenSeesAPI

alt text

OSAPI short for OpenSeesAPI is a python package that is used to write OpenSees tcl scripts quickly. OSAPI is written using an object-oriented programing style making easy to interact with other commonly used python packages like numpy, scipy and maptlotlib.

Installation instructions

  • Make sure you have OpenSees downloaded and installed (including the required tcl libraries).
  • Add OpenSees (or OpenSeesSP/OpenSeesMP) to your system path. This can be done easily in the command prompt or terminal.

Windows Users:

set PATH=%PATH%;OpenSeesPath

Mac/Linux Users:

export PATH=$PATH:~/OpenSeesPath
  • Install OpenSeesAPI using pip. This can be done using the following command.
pip install OpenSeesAPI

Advance Users

Advanced users (who intends to add classes or change the source code) can also clone this repository and then setup it in develop mode which allows you to make changes to the original source files as you run OSAPI (this is recommended as I have not included all the OpenSees classes).

Instructions:

  • Add OpenSees to your path
  • In your working directory, clone GitHub respository
git clone https://github.com/nassermarafi/OpenSeesAPI
  • Install OSAPI in develop mode
python setup.py develop
  • Start developing OSAPI and make some pull requests
