Python

A lot of research projects use Python and different Python packages/modules to achieve results. This page describes how to easily setup a workable python environment with your own python packages inside.

For new projects, you should in particular consider whether you want to use the 2.x or 3.x variant of Python. The two versions are not compatible and in some cases, you may have to use an older 2.7.x versions of Python due to some of your packages not working with Python 3.x.

SSH setup (Windows)

Secure Shell (SSH) is a way to login to remote computers securely as all data is encrypted in both directions between the local computer (your laptop) and the remote computer (Abacus 2.0).

Using SSH keys is an even more secure way to use SSH to access a remote compute as there is no password exchange between the local and remote computer. An SSH key pair is generated on the local computer. The key pair consists of a private key which stays on your local computer and a public key which must be uploaded to the remote computer.
