The GSD file format is the native file format for HOOMD-blue. GSD files store trajectories of the HOOMD-blue system state in a binary file with efficient random access to frames. GSD allows all particle and topology properties to vary from one frame to the next. Use the GSD Python API to specify the initial condition for a HOOMD-blue simulation or analyze trajectory output with a script. Read a GSD trajectory with a visualization tool to explore the behavior of the simulation.
