Developing FLEUR

The development effort for FLEUR is mainly hosted at the Institute Quantum Theory of Materials @Forschungszentrum Juelich Germany.

But also everybody else is welcome to contribute to the development of the Fleur code.


The development process is performed using gitlab. You can access the main gitlab page here.

If you checkout the code please be aware that there are several branches.

  • The release branch contains the code of the last release published on the FLEUR webpage. You can not push to this branch directly.
  • You probably want to use the development branch to insert your changes.
  • If your changes are large, it might be a good idea to create your own branch first.

The changes you push to the gitlab will be tested by our CI directly: .

There also is a developer's wiki
