Framework for computational science

The aiida-fleur python package enables the use of the all-electron DFT code Fleur (http://www.flapw.de) with the AiiDA framework (http://www.aiida.net). The package contains plugins for the Fleur code, inpgen and a datastructure. Further it contains basic workflows and utility. It stands under the MIT license and is available under (https://github.com/broeder-j/aiida-fleur). It is developed within the MaX EU Center of Excellence (www.max-center.eu) at Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (http://www.fz-juelich.de/pgi/pgi-1/DE/Home/home_node.html), (IAS-1/PGI-1), Germany.


On these pages is the documentation of the aiida-fleur source code, some design description, usuage examples and tutorials of the plugin. For futher PGI-1 interal hints go to the Fleur wiki.

Installation Instructions:

From the aiida-fleur folder use:

$ pip install -e .

To uninstall use:

$ pip uninstall aiida-fleur

Soon (When package on pypi):

$ pip install aiida-fleur

Alternative (old): The python source files of the plug-in have to be placed in the AiiDA source code in certain places. You might use the copy_plugin_files.sh script to do so.

To test wether the installation was successful use:

$ verdi calculation plugins
