- What does the name ESPResSo++ stand for?
Extendible Simulation Package for Research on Soft Matter. Obviously, plus plus (a reference to the C++ kernel)
- Which programming languages do I need to know when using ESPResSo++?
The short answer is you have to understand Python. Most of the example scripts are self-explanatory and can be adapted for your purposes by simple changes. The long answer is it is better to have a bit of interest or experience with C (or C++). Then you will be able to understand the kernel modules and fine-tune the program for your purposes in an efficient way.
Don’t be afraid of learning
