Description : the missing complement to Python
Monty is the missing complement to Python. Monty implements
supplementary useful functions for Python that are not part of the
standard library. Examples include useful utilities like transparent
support for zipped files, useful design patterns such as singleton and
cached_class, and many more.
Python is a great programming language and comes with “batteries
included”. However, even Python has missing functionality and/or
quirks that make it more difficult to do many simple tasks. In the
process of creating several large scientific frameworks based on
Python, my co-developers and I have found that it is often useful to
create reusable utility functions to supplement the Python standard
library. Our forays in various developer sites and forums also found
that many developers are looking for solutions to the same problems.
Monty is created to serve as a complement to the Python standard
library. It provides suite of tools to solve many common problems, and
hopefully, be a resource to collect the best solutions.
Required dependency for pymatgen.
