Originally conceived by Daniel Lassahn of alitiq (formerly meteoIntelligence), the GribMagic Python package was conceived as a bulk downloader for NWP data from different providers.
The original code has been refactored to be made available as a standalone package and some additional functionality has been added, which is described in the next section.
All functionality has been made available from the command line.
Because ICON-GLOBAL data is only published using an triangular/icosahedral grid, a regridding program similar to DWD’s
regrid has been added, in order to transform the data into a regular latitude-longiture/geographical grid.
bbox tool was added, in order to extract an area of interest from GRIB files using a bounding box or country code.
pip install gribmagic

We would like to encourage all people interested in this program to participate by sharing their ideas and use-cases. We are looking for any kind of motivating feedback about any bugs or improvements which could be implemented. Contributing features by sending patches would be even sweeter.
