Welcome to SWIFTsimIO’s documentation!

swiftsimio is a toolkit for reading SWIFT data, an astrophysics simulation code. It is used to ensure that everything that you read has a symbolic unit attached, and can be used for visualisation. The final key feature that it enables is the use of the cell metadata in SWIFT snapshots to enable partial reading.
