This is yet another PyPI package for http://mmcif.wwpdb.org/pdbx-mmcif-home-page.html. It emphasizes a simple and pure Python interface to basic mmCIF functionality.
The canonical mmCIF Python package can be found at https://github.com/rcsb/py-mmcif. It is full-featured and includes C/C++ code to accelerate I/O functions.
Origin of this software¶
All of the code in this repository is based on http://mmcif.wwpdb.org/. Specifically, this code is directly derived from http://mmcif.wwpdb.org/docs/sw-examples/python/src/pdbx.tar.gz linked from http://mmcif.wwpdb.org/docs/sw-examples/python/html/.
See http://mmcif.wwpdb.org/docs/sw-examples/python/html/ for more information about this package, including examples.
Versions 0.* maintain API compatibility with the original code. Subsequent versions break that compatibility, primarily by renaming methods in compliance with PEP8.
The software can be tested with pytest by running:
python -m pytest
from the top-level directory.
