Hi everyone — we won't be having office hours tomorrow because of the simultaneous PlasmaPy tutorial during the SULI intro course. We also won't have our community meeting or office hours during the week of July 11–15 because of Plasma Hack Week.

PlasmaPy v0.8.1 has been released!
It can be installed with pip install plasmapy now, and it should be installable with conda soon too.
Nick Murphy
@namurphy:matrix.org
[m]
PlasmaPy 0.8.1 is now available via conda-forge now too! Here are instructions on how to install it with conda and with Anaconda Navigator. Be sure to use the conda-forge channel, which on the command line would be with the flag -c conda-forge.
At first we ran into a version conflict between NumPy and Numba, which led to an ImportError when doing import plasmapy after installing it via conda. That problem appears to be fixed, but please let us know if you encounter this issue and we will do our best to fix it ASAP.

Peter Heuer: Do you think I can get a quick review on PR 1645? PlasmaPy/PlasmaPy#1645
I don't think Nick Murphy is back online yet, and this PR addresses why all the documentation builds are currently failing.
Nick Murphy

I had a moment during a coffee break to take a look at the PR, and it all looked good. Hopefully the bugs in Sphinx 5.1 get worked out soon.

Excellent! Thank you, sorry for bugging you.

No worries! I was just in the process of testing the falsifiable hypothesis that coffee without anything in it tastes good.
I probably won't make it to the community meeting tomorrow, but will be around for Wednesday & Thursday.
It'd probably be a good idea to do a fortnightly test of the documentation build with sphinx-dev.
1 reply
Correction, we do have a fortnightly test with sphinx-dev. Just noticed that it's running the Python tests and not the doc build. Oops! edit: not sure why this didn't catch it though.

Dear Developers,
I am trying to use the Proton Radiography diagnostics tool in PlasmaPy, and I want to ask how to apply the electromagnetic fields I simulated from other code to the field grid properly.

Do you have any examples to do this, like those in the documentation now?

Thanks very much!
Yao

A friendly reminder that we won't be having our community meeting, our office hours, or any working group meetings during the week of Oct 17-21 because of the APS DPP fall meeting. If you're attending, please stop by our in-person booth! We're hoping to enable joining by Zoom also for remote attendees, and please also feel free to stop by our office hours.
Nick Murphy

If you'll be attending the APS DPP fall meeting, please feel free to stop by and chat with us at the table for PlasmaPy! I'm not exactly sure where the table will be, through probably in the poster hall with the rest of the exhibitors.

Python 3.11 has been released! The main highlights of 3.11 are:
  • A performance improvement of 1.25x on the standard benchmark suite
  • Improved error locations in tracebacks
There's also TOML support in the standard library via tomllib, support for exception groups, and a bunch of helpful typing features.
Nick Murphy

It will probably take a few weeks for NumPy to become compatible with it, and possibly up to a few months for Numba (and hence PlasmaPy). I usually recommend upgrading the version of Python about three months after its release.

Making sure since iffy timezone fortnight is upon us - community meeting in 1h40min from now, right? :)
By the way, about the recent doc failures, it smells like an intersphinx issue with scipy - gotta check if they haven't changed anything recently

Hi the #PlasmaPy users!

If some of you are using mastodon, I'm making a tentative to list the accounts fusion-related people/account:

https://jhillairet.github.io/Mastodon-Nuclear-Fusion/

For the moment this list is this list is much (much!) less extensive than the one I have for Twitter users, but who knows how Twitter will evolve... This list is open for PR of course!

Hi All,

What is your way to read EQDSK equilibrium files?

Is there a plan to implement this kind of file into #PlasmaPy?

I've found a simple script on github which seems to work (at this for the file I have), and I'm sure similar functions have been made in plenty of other software like in OMFIT

Nick Murphy

That looks like an exciting thread to follow along! I'll try to remember to ask around if there was Python usage that helped lead to that breakthrough. I've been meaning to join fosstodon but it looked like there was a waiting list when I tried. Were we still thinking about a fosstodon account?

For anyone who frequently makes use of CHIANTI data: I'm happy to announce the first release of fiasco, a Python interface to the CHIANTI atomic database. fiasco provides an object-oriented interface to the CHIANTI data as well as functions for computing many common derived quantities from said data, such as ionization equilibria and contribution functions.

The GitHub repository can be found here and the documentation can be found here. You can install fiasco from PyPI using pip,

pip install fiasco

Feedback, including bug reports and contributions, is very welcome! Currently, fiasco only supports version 8 of CHIANTI, but work is ongoing to support versions 9 and 10 as well.

Our next release is scheduled to come out next week! If there's anything you'd like to get through beforehand, hit me up and we'll try to get it through asap 🙂

Also, it's going to be the first date-based one!
