gsd Python package#

GSD provides a Python API. Use the gsd.hoomd module to read and write files for HOOMD-blue.


Package contents#

The GSD main module.

The main package gsd is the root package. It holds the submodules gsd.fl and gsd.hoomd, but does not import them by default. You must explicitly import these modules before use:

import gsd.fl

import gsd.hoomd

GSD software version number. This is the version number of the software package as a whole, not the file layer version it reads/writes.




All Python modules in GSD use the Python standard library module logging to log events. Use this module to control the verbosity and output destination:

import logging
