# Welcome to AiiDA-VASP’s documentation!¶

AiiDA-VASP is a plug-in for the workflow management and data provenance tracking framework AiiDA. It provides the classes AiiDA needs to run simulations using VASP (Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package). VASP is a program for atomic scale materials modelling, e.g. electronic structure calculations and quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics, from first principles. For detailed documentation on using VASP take a look in their VASP wiki.

AiiDA-VASP is under active development, check out the changelog.

The plugin is only tested with VASP 5.4.4 and is compatible with Python>=3.6.

$commands in a standard Linux console, used together with the standard Python virtual environment % commands in the Conda console, used together with the Conda virtual environment %/$ same commands in the Conda console or standard Linux console

As such, whenever needed, we will try to keep parallel documentation on this. If you are on a Conda platform, please follow the commands prepended with %. Similarly you follow the commands with a $ prepended if you are using the standard Python virtual enviroments. In case the commands are the same for both cases, %/$ is prepended to the commands. The commands executed in the Postgresql interactive terminal (psql) should be similar between the two.
