A successful installation of Taichi should add a CLI (Command-Line Interface) to your system, which is helpful to perform several rountine tasks quickly. To invoke the CLI, please run
python3 -m taichi.
Taichi provides a set of bundled examples. You could run
ti example -h to print the help message and get a list of available example names.
For instance, to run the basic
fractal example, try:
ti example fractal from your shell. (
ti example fractal.py should also work)
You may print the source code of example by running
ti example -p fractal, or
ti example -P fractal for print with syntax highlight.
You may also save the example to current work directory by running
ti example -s fractal.
Sometimes it's convenient to view the changelog of the current version of Taichi. To do so, you could run
ti changelog in your shell.
Sometimes it's convenient to start a Python shell with
import taichi as ti as a pre-loaded module for fast testing and confirmation. To do so from your shell, you could run
When you try to report potential bugs in an issue, please consider running
ti diagnose and offer its output as an attachment. This could help maintainers to learn more about the context and the system information of your environment to make the debugging process more efficient and solve your issue more easily.
Before posting it, please review and make sure there's no sensitive information about your data or yourself gets carried in.
Sometimes it's convenient to convert a series of
png files into a single video when showing your result to others.
For example, suppose you have
000001.png, ... generated according to Export your results in the current working directory.
Then you could run
ti video to create a file
video.mp4 containing all these images as frames (sorted by file name).
ti video -f40 for creating a video with 40 FPS.
Sometimes we need
gif images in order to post the result on forums.
To do so, you could run
ti gif -i video.mp4, where
video.mp4 is the
mp4 video (generated with instructions above).
ti gif -i video.mp4 -f40 for creating a GIF with 40 FPS.
