The European Synchrotron (ESRF) has identified data analysis and data management as a key priority and is going to commit ~45 years of additional full-time-equivalent man power to that purpose in the 2016-2022 period.

Among the expected deliverables, there is a set of tools to simplify development and maintenance of scientific applications. The silx toolkit ( tries to achieve that goal. After an introduction to the data analysis and management project, the silx toolkit will be presented in detail. Besides new applications, well-known ESRF applications like pyFAI and PyMca are expected to base their graphical user interfaces on this library in order to reduce and share maintenance efforts.
