Using Java

Lucifer allows for Python and Java code to work side by side through the use of LMI.Java extension. For this to work you will need to install jpype1, to do this run the following command in your python environment:
pip install jpype1
From here you are free to interact with LMI.Java.compiler and LMI.Java.luciferJVM which allows you to call java functions and instantiate java classes through python, more documentation of this will be created later on, on the lucifer wiki.


Settings Variables

Running Module



The standard of versioning on this project is:



  • incremented when either there has been a significant amount of new features since the start of the major or if there is a change which is so big that is can cause compatibility issues (Major of 0 if very unstable
  • Could cause incompatibility issues


  • incremented when a new feature or feature-set is added to the project
  • should not cause incompatibility errors due to only additions made


  • incremented on bugfixes or if feature is so small that it is worth incrementing minor
  • very low risk of incompatibility error


  • The stage of current MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH BUILD, either alpha, beta, release candidate or release
  • Indicates how far through development the new MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH is
  • Stage number to name translation:
    • 0 => beta (b)
    • 1 => alpha (a)
    • 2 => release candidate (rc)
    • 3 => release (r)


  • this should be incremented on every change made to the code, even on a one character change

This version structure can be stored and displayed in a few ways:

  • The best way to store the data within code is via a tuple such as:
    • (Major, Minor, Patch, Stage, Build)
      • Example is: (1, 4, 1, 2, 331)
  • The long display would be:
    • {stage} {major}.{minor}.{patch} Build {build}
      • Example is: Alpha 1.4.1 Build 331
  • The short display would be:
    • {major}.{minor}.{patch}{stage}{build}
      • Example is: 1.4.1a331
