Viewing Granta MI BoM Analytics Documentation

Documentation for the latest stable release of Granta MI BoM Analytics is hosted at Granta MI BoM Analytics Documentation.


Examples are included to give more context around the core functionality described in the API documentation. Additional examples are welcomed, especially if they cover a key use-case of the package which has not previously been covered.

The example scripts are placed in the examples directory, and are included in the documentation build if the environment variable BUILD_EXAMPLES is set to True. Otherwise, the example build is skipped and a placeholder page is inserted into the documentation.

Examples are authored using Jupyter notebooks, but are converted into plain .py files before being checked in. As part of the doc build process described above, the py files are converted back into Jupyter notebooks and are executed, which populates the output cells.

This conversion between notebooks and plain python files is performed by nb-convert, see the nb-convert documentation for installation instructions.
