Mesa: Agent-based modeling in Python 3+
Mesa is an Apache2 licensed agent-based modeling (or ABM) framework in Python.
It allows users to quickly create agent-based models using built-in core components (such as spatial grids and agent schedulers) or customized implementations; visualize them using a browser-based interface; and analyze their results using Python's data analysis tools. Its goal is to be the Python 3-based alternative to NetLogo, Repast, or MASON.

- Modular components
- Browser-based visualization
- Built-in tools for analysis
- Example model library
Getting started quickly:
$ pip install mesa
You can also use pip to install the github version:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/projectmesa/mesa
Take a look at the examples folder for sample models demonstrating Mesa features.
