EditScenario is a python 2 and 3 script used to generate and manipulate Fortran namelists - based on XML formatted configuration file.
EditScenario can be operated in both a scriptable
and GUI(*) based way.
EditScenario requires a schema definition for the Fortran namelists to generate as well as a file with actual settings for a specific configuration. The use of XML as configuration language allows for a much richer experince compared to Fortran namelists including – in addition to variable values – human readable descriptions and variable units.
It is available frompypi as a wheel-file and can be installed like this:
pip install editscenario <--user>
<–user> if for per user installation - if omitted installation will be for all users.
Additional dependencies will be installed as well.
After installation the following can be used a a guide for use:
EditScenario comes with a close cousin - nml2xml converts an namelist-based to a XML-based one so that editscenario can be used.
(*) Full support for the GUI functionality has been sacrifized for now - might still work with Python2 but will NOT work with Python3. In addition there are issues with Intels Python distribution and PyQt.
