This documentation contains the auto-generated API information for the HDF5 for Python “low-level” interface, a collection of Cython modules which form the interface to the HDF5 C library. It’s hosted separately from our main documentation as it requires autodoc.
These docs are updated less frequently than the spiffy ReadTheDocs-hosted main documentation; this means roughly once per minor (X.Y) release.
The main docs for h5py are at http://docs.h5py.org. These are the docs specifically for the h5py low-level interface.
