This quickstart guide to using yt begins by showing you how to install yt and its dependencies, shows you how to make some simple plots, and then moves to a brief explanation of how to use python and how yt’s framework fits into that. Finally, it addresses how to ask questions of your data using yt.
But, before getting too far in, here are a few resources that may come in handy along the way. (These go from most-specific to least-specific!)
