orix is an open-source python library for analysing orientations and crystal symmetry.
The package defines objects and functions for the analysis of orientations represented
as quaternions or 3D rotation vectors accounting for crystal symmetry. Functionality
builds primarily on top of numpy and
matplotlib and is heavily inspired by the
