Two new (undocumented) features: halo callback and periodic boundary conditions
There are two new things I've found it necessary to add lately. These are only in trunk/ , so if you're on branches/yt-1.0 , you won't have them. (They might not be stable yet anyway!)
The first is a hop circle callback. It accepts the output from Hop and adds on circles at the halo centers with the maximum particle radius as the radius of the circle. Here is a full example script, where it looks for halos in the *entire* dataset, then projects density and overplots the halo positions. You can also feed in a max_number argument to the HopCircleCallback, and it will only plot the first N halos, in order of decreasing mass.
-- pf = EnzoStaticOutput("my_data0001.dir/my_data0001") hop = hop.HopList(pf.h.sphere([0.5]*3, 1.00)) pc = PlotCollection(pf,center=[0.5]*3)
for ax in range(3): pc.add_projection("Density", ax) pc.plots[ax].add_callback(HopCircleCallback(hop, ax)) --
The other new addition is periodic plots. For this one, you can now do:
-- pf = EnzoStaticOutput("my_data0001.dir/my_data0001") pc = PlotCollection(pf,center=[0.5, 0.8, 0.8]) pc.add_projection("Density", 0, periodic=True) --
note that the only difference is the keyword argument periodic=True. This will wrap your plot around based on its current center and the size of the domain. (It should respect axially-dependent DomainLeftEdge and DomainRightEdge.)
Additionally -- for those of you that have read all the way to the bottom -- I started working on a profile to use inside IPython (ipython.scipy.org), which is just the most amazing Python shell in the world. Jeff Oishi is more of an IPython expert than I am, so he'll be adding to it and cleaning up my mistakes, but the end result is going to be that the operations of moving around, opening data, recursively finding data and examining data are all going to be simplified significantly. Much of the verbosity of the scripting interface is going to be hidden from the user and the guts will be more easily exposed.
Have a good one!
