Cresset Python Extensions extend the functionality of our Flare™ structure-based design platform. These are available to all Flare users free of charge.
Flare Python Extensions
The Flare Python Extensions are a collection of Python scripts which add powerful new functionality to Flare. After installing them, a new 'Extensions' ribbon tab will be added to the Flare GUI. As you hover your mouse over each of the buttons, a tooltip will appear providing a short explanation of the extension’s function.

These scripts allow all the main Flare functions to be accessed through the pyflare command line Python interpreter.
