The yambopy project aims to develop python tools to:

  • Read and edit yambo and quantum espresso input files
  • Easily perform pre- and post-processing of the simulation data for these two codes - including hard-to-get, database-encoded data beyond standard outputs
  • Provide easy visualization and plotting options
  • Set up simple automatization workflows (e.g., convergence tests)


Make sure that you are using Python 3, and follow the setup instructions for Yambopy. The abipy [[1]] package is optional. You may however want to have it installed for band structure interpolations.


Now yambopy is ready to use! Just go to the tutorials folder and follow the docs!
