In conjunction with the release of yt 3.5, I'm pleased to announce the inaugural release of the yt_astro_analysis package.
yt_astro_analysis is an extension of yt for astro-specific analysis modules. This functionality previously existed in yt as the analysis_modules submodule, but has been spun off into its own package to allow development to occur on its own timeline independent of yt.
- halo finding - halo analysis - light cones - data export to RADMC-3D radiative transfer code
Switching from yt's analysis_modules to yt_astro_analysis should be straightforward. yt_astro_analysis can be installed with pip:
pip install yt_astro_analysis
Then, analysis scripts need only change their import lines from "yt.analysis_modules" to "yt.extensions.astro_analysis".
The yt_astro_analysis package lives at: https://github.com/yt-project/yt_astro_analysis
Documentation can be found at: https://yt-astro-analysis.readthedocs.io
Just like yt, contributions to yt_astro_analysis are highly encouraged!
