Saving and sharing results

Clawpack now includes some tools to help facilitate archiving and sharing results that you have obtained with this software. These make it relatively easy to generate a set of webpages such as those seen when browsing the examples collected in galleries.

These webpages can easily be posted on your own website to be viewed by others if you wish, for example to share on-going work with collaborators or to supplement a journal article.

Making webpages of plots

The “make .plots” option available via the standard Makefiles will create a set of webpages illustrating the plots and allowing easy navigation between frames. These webpages also allow viewing all frames of a plot as an animation (via javascript within the browser).

See Plotting with Visclaw for more details on how to specify what plots will appear on these webpages.

Sharing your results

To make it easy for others to view your code and the resulting plots, you can simply copy the example directory (containing the code and the _plots subdirectory) to your publicly visible web pages.

IPython notebooks

You should also consider creating an IPython notebook to explain your problem, illustrate your workflow, and present plots and animations all in one. See notebooks for some examples.
