Delny is a Python package which can be used to
make a Delaunay triangulation from a set of n-dimensional points. It is
effectively a Python interface to
libqhull, the C library of the
Qhull program, but (currently) restricted to
It was first developed to use in a mesh generator developed as
dissertation at the University of
Southampton with Hans Fangohr
as supervisor. This very specific application area was the reason for
the limited functionality of the
libqhull wrapper, which in
turn is likely the reason that there is useable code available.
The package is still very much in development and no stability in features or API is guaranteed whatsoever currently. For the latest plans see the TODO file in the repository.
Despite very slow development currently, the package is still maintained. It is hoped that the package reaches at least a stable state for Delaunay triangulation.
There has also been intrest to extend the Qhull wrapper to the convex hull functionality. No commitment to this has been made however, but contributions are welcome.
The package can be found on PyPI. Naturally it is recommended to use the last version, but older versions are also available for software that is not updated to the latest API yet.
Suggestions, improvements and patches are welcome!
