QtPlaskin is a graphical interface to analyze results from a plasma kinetic code such as ZdPlasKin (1)


It supports both a specific data format based on HDF5 and importing directories with certain filesets that can be written from a running FORTRAN code. 



The full source code of QtPlaskin is available at


QtPlaskin is developed in Python and runs in Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

QtPlaskin was developed by the TRAPPA group at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, CSIC in Granada, Spain.


It is distributed under the GPLv3 license, which basically means that you can use it and re-distribute it as much as you want but we expect you to release any extensions or improvements to the code also under a GPL license.


We would appreciate any feedback and bug reports.
