# hoomd.meta¶

Overview

 hoomd.meta.dump_metadata Writes simulation metadata into a file.

Details

Write out simulation and environment context metadata.

Metadata is stored in form of key-value pairs in a JSON file and used to summarize the per-run simulation parameters so that they can be easily taken up by other scripts and stored in a database.

Example:

metadata = meta.dump_metadata()

hoomd.meta.dump_metadata(filename=None, user=None, indent=4)
