Testing a PyClaw installation and running an example¶
If you downloaded Clawpack manually, you can test your PyClaw installation as follows (starting from your clawpack directory):
This should return ‘OK’. (You may need to install nose if nosetests is not on your system.)
Running an example¶
You might also want to download the Clawpack Applications repository, which contains additional examples in apps/notebooks/pyclaw.
From the Jupyter notebook¶
Try any of the notebooks listed under PyClaw in the notebooks.
From the IPython interpreter¶
Launch an IPython session and then:
from clawpack.pyclaw import examples
claw = examples.shock_bubble_interaction.setup()
From the command line¶
To run an example and plot the results using PyClaw, simply do the following (starting from your clawpack directory):
python shock_bubble_interaction.py iplot=1
That’s it. For next steps with PyClaw, see PyClaw Basics.
