Run a MetaWards simulation

  • silent (bool) – Run without printing the output to the screen

  • dry_run (bool) – Don’t run anything - just print what will be run

  • help (bool) – Whether or not to print the full help

  • version (bool) – Whether or not to print the metawards version info

  • output (str) – The name of the directory in which to write the output. If this is not set, then a new, random-named directory will be used.

  • force_overwrite_output (bool) – Force overwriting the output directory - this will remove any existing directory before running

  • auto_load (bool) – Whether or not to automatically load and return a pandas dataframe of the output/results.csv.bz2 file. If pandas is available then this defaults to True, otherwise False

  • disease (Disease or str) – The disease to model (or the filename of the json file containing the disease, or name of the disease)

  • model (Ward, Wards or str) – The network wards to run (of the filename of the json file containing the network, or name of the network))

  • are many more parameters, based on the arguments to (There) –

  • --help. (metawards) –

  • set "help" to True to print out a full list of (Please) –

  • for all of the arguments (help) –


    results – The file containing the output results (output/results.csv.bz2), or, if auto_load is True, the pandas.DataFrame containing those results


    str or pandas.DataFrame
