NeXpy v0.10.12 has just been released, and the underlying nexusformat API has been updated to v0.4.18. Both contain a number of bug fixes and enhancements. Upgrading is recommended, particularly to maintain compatibility with recent versions of IPython and Matplotlib.

* This version uses the FabIO library, when installed, to read TIFF and CBF images, which can be read using a new “Open Image…” menu item.
* A new “Open Directory…” menu item allows an entire directory of NeXus files to be loaded.
* HDF5 datasets containing soft links are now recognized, although they are not officially a part of the NeXus standard.
* There are improvements in the selection of default axes when plotting NXfields.

Full release notes are available at https://github.com/nexpy/nexpy/releases and https://github.com/nexpy/nexusformat/releases.

NeXpy provides a high-level Python interface to HDF5 files, particularly those stored as NeXus data, within a simple GUI. It is designed to provide an intuitive interactive toolbox allowing users both to access, visualize, and manipulate existing NeXus files, and to create new NeXus-conforming data structures without expert knowledge of the file format. The underlying Python API for reading and writing NeXus files is provided by the nexusformat package, which utilizes h5py.

NeXpy is available on both the Python Package Index server and Anaconda:

  $ pip install nexpy


  $ conda install -c nexpy nexpy
