The package is distributed freely within Météo France and partners of the ALADIN and HIRLAM consortia.

Distribution/Installation is available:

  • At Météo France:

    • on CNRM-GAME linux workstations: under /home/common/epygram/EPyGrAM; just ask CTI for synchronization of both (/home/common/epygram, /home/common/sync) on your linux PC. Installation instructions to be found then at /home/common/epygram/EPyGrAM/_install/INSTALL_README_cnrm_bull.txt
    • on BULL supercomputers: under /home/gmap/mrpe/mary/public/EPyGrAM; installation instructions to be found then at /home/gmap/mrpe/mary/public/EPyGrAM/_install/INSTALL_README_cnrm_bull.txt
    • else, on demand (alexandre.mary@meteo.fr).
  • For partners of ALADIN/HIRLAM consortia: elements are available either:

  • Elsewhere:

    • You won’t be able to support (and you certainly don’t need) the FA and LFA formats; you must exclude them from the list of implemented formats:

      • create a $HOME/.epygram directory
      • copy the samples userconfig.py and user_Field_Dict_FA.csv, provided in _install directory, to it
      • copy the ‘implemented_formats’ from epygram/config.py into userconfig.py and remove FA and LFA from the list
    • If you don’t want to support the LFI format, you can suppress it along with the FA and LFA formats. Otherwise, you need to compile a shared library containing the LFI fortran subroutines. A way of doing this is through the compilation of the Meso-NH model. Then the libs4py.so file must be put in the EPyGrAM/site/arpifs4py directory.

Maintenance & Obligations

The package is distributed without maintenance obligation from the authors nor Météo France (CNRM/GMAP).

Every bug report, porting matter, or functionality improvement can be addressed by priority to the Issues system of the Redmine platform, or by mail to alexandre.mary@meteo.fr.

Furthermore, the package is supposed to evolve in a collaborative way. Feel free to contribute proposing your own developments, if general enough to potentially interest other people. The source code management is hosted by a GIT repository, together with a Redmine platform for project management. However, the authors nor Météo France do not undertake to incorporate all proposed contributions into the main trunk of the code and the official releases.

New releases will be distributed with the above conditions, with information to be delivered through the Redmine project and epygram@meteo.fr mailing-list.
