We are happy to announce the release of brian2tools. The brian2tools package aims to become a collection of useful tools for simulating spiking neural networks with brian2 and for analyzing the results from those simulations. The first 0.1.1 release includes a number of useful functions to plot synaptic connections and variables, multicompartmental morphologies, and the results of simulations (raster plots, rate plots, state variables over time). For more information, have a look at the documentation: brian2tools.readthedocs.io The package can be installed with anaconda or from source, see the installation instructions for details.
