Regarding some examples and some guidelines in developing in Python

Dear Matthias and all altruists,

I am very new in Klayout. I want to contribute in Klayout development in Python.

Please provide me some guidelines and examples written in python so that i can learn. If you have tutorial videos, that will be great.

Thanks in advance.


  • Very good :-)

    KLayout core development is C++ - no Python involved.

    For Python scripts you basically have many options. You can provide packages or Python scripts based on the standalone klayout module (see klayout on PyPI). I don't have specific guidelines here.

    If you consider making packages you should read this:

    Kind regards,


  • Thank you so much Matthias. I appreciate your kind help.
