postgkyl reference

“I love pgkyl! However, Petr, the next feature I want is …” – Ammar Hakim

Below is the living reference to the postgkyl tool (hosted on Github) for post-processing gkyl simulation data. The main aspiration of Postgkyl is to create a postprocessing suit which would:

  1. Make simple tasks very easy

  2. Make complex tasks possible

The documentation is split into three sections. The first section introduces the key concepts of using Postgkyl and goes into details of loading data. Particularly the former one is a strongly recommended reading for new users. The second part provides many examples of using Postgkyl, which aim to supplement the examples already presented in the Quickstart chapter. Finally, the last part consists of detailed documentation for each individual available command.
