@igorjrd igorjrd commented Sep 15, 2019

Bugfix to detect phases containing pure vacancy sublattices, according to: #191

When any phase satisfies the requirement (containing at least one pure vacancy sublattice) an error message is raised.

# None of the components in a sublattice are active
# We cannot build a model of this phase
raise DofError(
'{0}: Sublattice {1} of {2} has no components in {3}' \
.format(self.phase_name, sublattice,
if sum(set(map(lambda s : getattr(s, 'number_of_atoms'),sublattice_comps))) == 0:

Thanks for submitting this PR!

I think this line may be causing the tests to fail because any sublattice that has only VA will raise an error, but we only want to raise an error here if all sublattices have only VA.

For example, given a phase with sublattices (('FE', 'VA'), ('VA')), the phase should built if both FE and VA are specified (i.e. it's ok if the last sublattice is VA only, as long as the first sublattice has FE occupied).

It might be helpful to write a unit test that exercises some different conditions.

You're welcome! Its a pleasure to try contributing on pycalphad.

I see, as you said, my previous approach works detecting if the phase has any pure vancacy sublattice. I fixed this storing the number_of_atoms of each sublattice in a set called is_pure_VA and checking if the sum of is_pure_VA is equal to zero after get the number_of_atoms in each sublattice. Now i think that it will work, I tested building some Models used in the tests of TravisCI and it worked fine

The builds all seem to be passing (appveyor checked by hand because of #238), except for some non-test related bug where pip wants to install certifi over the conda installed version on macOS+Python 3.6. This is also happening over at #240. This looks ready to merge to me.

This looks great. Two minor changes before we merge:

  1. Please delete the extra whitespace which was added at the end of (not a big deal, but since we have to make the other change anyway)
  2. Can we add the test case to pycalphad/tests/
