Tested with CATMAID release version 2020.02.15 - if you are working with older versions you may run into issues due to API changes.
- pull and push data from/to a CATMAID server
- visualize and analyse neuron morphology via navis
- tools to analyse user stats (e.g. time-invested, project history)
- clustering methods (e.g. by connectivity or synapse placement)
Pymaid is on ReadTheDocs.
See the documentation for detailed installation instructions, tutorials and examples. For the impatient:
pip3 install python-catmaid
Important: there is a
pymaid package on PyPI which has nothing to do with
To install the bleeding edge from Github:
pip3 install git+https://github.com/navis-org/pymaid@master
