The AMUSE software is primarily developed in Python. In the AMUSE system you write a python script to control the codes and manage the simulation. The AMUSE framework provides data handling, unit management and code integration. For an overview of the architecture see http://www.amusecode.org/doc/design/architecture.html.
Getting the code
