EasyData.jl (+EasyDataHDF5 Output)


The EasyData.jl module provides a simple interface to read/write datasets and plots to files.

Examples of the EasyData.jl capabilities can be found under the test directory

Major Highlight: EasyDataHDF5 Output

EasyData.jl makes it easy to write EasyPlot objects to HDF5 files. With the help of the HDF5 file format, EasyDataHDF5 files embed both the data, and a description of the plot sturcture in one convenient file.

Known Limitations

  • The EasyDataHDF5 format is still in the experimental phase. It is not yet stable, and prone to major re-structuring.
  • There is currently no versionning of EasyDataHDF5 files.
  • Without versioning, EasyDataHDF5 files cannot easily be re-loaded - and therefore not the best choice for archival purposes. That being said, with an HDF5 viewer, the format can probably be figured out with relative ease.


Extensive compatibility testing of EasyData.jl has not been performed. The module has been tested using the following environment(s):

  • Linux / Julia-1.1.1


The EasyData.jl module is not yet mature. Expect significant changes.
