This is the KROME repository
KROME is a nice and friendly package to model chemistry and microphysics
for a wide range of astrophysical simulations.
Given a chemical network (in CSV-like format) it automatically
generates all the routines needed to solve the kinetic of the system,
modelled as system of coupled Ordinary Differential Equations.
It provides different options which make it unique and very flexible.
Any suggestions and comments are welcomed. KROME is an open-source
package, GNU-licensed, and any improvements provided by
