This package allows for interaction with APSIM-X ("Next Generation") and/or APSIM 'Classic' (7.10). It can inspect, edit, run and read APSIM files in both platforms. The format is JSON for APSIM-X and XML for 'Classic'.

Package requirements

NOTE ON REQUIREMENTS:

If you are running the latest version of APSIM Next Gen (Sept 2021 or later), you do not need to install the Mono Framework.

Mono framework download: https://www.mono-project.com/download/stable/

.Net Core download for Mac: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download

APSIMX download: https://www.apsim.info/download-apsim/

Since APSIM Next Gen 2021.04.01 (at least) .NET framework 4.6 or higher is required for Windows and I have had to update the Mono framework to 6.12 on Mac (again this applies to pre Sep 2021).

If you want to install this package from github try in R:

library(devtools) \ devtools::install_github("femiguez/apsimx") \ library(apsimx)

or the lightweight 'remotes' package

library(remotes) \ remotes::install_github("femiguez/apsimx") \ library(apsimx)

It is not necessary to build the vignettes as they are also at: https://femiguez.github.io/apsimx-docs/

Note: Building the vignettes does not require the presence of APSIM-X as I have recently eliminated the APSIM-X dependency.

Still, if you want to build the vignettes, then use this instead of the second line above:

devtools::install_github("femiguez/apsimx", build_vignettes = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))

If you do build the vignettes, there is an introduction to the package

vignette("apsimx")

and a document which might help you build your own scripts either in R or other languages

vignette("apsimx-scripts")

If you have any questions contact Fernando E. Miguez (femiguez at iastate.edu)
