# Sympl: A System for Modelling Planets¶

sympl is an open source project aims to enable researchers and other users to write understandable, modular, accessible Earth system and planetary models in Python. It is meant to be used in combination with other packages that provide model components in order to write model scripts. Its source code can be found on GitHub.

New users should read the quickstart_. This framework is meant to be used along with model toolkits like CliMT_ to write models. See the paper_ on Sympl and CliMT for a good overview and some examples! You may also want to check out the CliMT documentation_.
