Welcome to the Materials Project Developer's Area. This page is aimed at helping you get set up to develop your own materials applications using the data and software of the Materials Project.

Programming language

To develop with your own applications with the Materials Project data, you can choose to use any programming language of your choice, though languages that natively support JSON parsing or support it via a robust library would allow you to get set up as quickly as possible. To maximize your mileage however, it is highly recommended that you use Python, which is the programming language that powers the Materials Project and is widely used by the scientific community.
