Packages are in development which make it possible to interface with the OpenKIM system from Python. This includes the ability to call KIM models (interatomic potentials) from Python and a package for remotely accessing and analyzing data (model predictions and first principles reference data) archived on openkim.org. We envision three packages: (1) “kimpy” providing lowlevel access to the KIM API; (2) “kimcalculator” enabling KIM models to be used with the popular Python-based Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE) (https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/ase/); and (3) “kimanalysis” for performing queries and analyses of openkim.org data. Preliminary versions of kimpy and kimcalculator have been developed and are currently being used in openkim.org. For example, the OpenKIM verification check system makes use of these packages (see https://openkim.org/about-verification-checks/). A web-based query system for openkim.org data has also been developed (see https://query.openkim.org/). The objective of this coding sprint is to bring together Python and ASE experts to finalize KIM-based Python packages and to release them publicly. This will make KIM models and data accessible to the Python community greatly extending the OpenKIM user base.
