ACCESS-OM2 Developer Docs


The first version of the ACCESS-OM2 developer documentation is now available.

Who is this for?

This is for anyone who wants to alter the source code of one of the components of ACCESS-OM2 (mom5, cice5, libaccessom2) and then recompile the model, and usually then test the model.


The ACCESS-OM2 developer documentation is available in the ACCESS-OM2 GitHub repository:

These instructions detail how to use the spack build system to build the model and then re-build the model after modifying the code of a component. This is the same system that is used to build the model in the automated deployment pipeline.

Note: this is an initial version of the documentation covering the simplest use case. More use cases will be added in future, and there is an issue to discuss progress.
