"""Definition of engines.

This package defines engines for PyRETIS. The engines are responsible
for carrying out dynamics for a system. This can in principle both
be molecular dynamics or Monte Carlo dynamics. Typically, with RETIS,
this will be molecular dynamics in some form in order to propagate
the equations of motion and obtain new trajectories.

Package structure

~~~~~~~ (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.cp2k`)
    Defines an engine for use with CP2K. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.engine`)
    Defines the base engine class. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.external`)
    Defines the interface for external engines. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.gromacs`)
    Defines an engine for use with GROMACS. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.gromacs2`)
    Defines an engine for use with GROMACS. This is
    an alternative implementation which does not rely on
    continuously starting and stopping the GROMACS
    executable. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.internal`)
    Defines internal PyRETIS engines. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.lammps`)
    Defines and engine for use with LAMMPS. (:py:mod:`pyretis.engines.openmm`)
    Defines an engine for use with OpenMM.

Important methods defined here

engine_factory (:py:func:`.engine_factory`)
    A method to create engines from settings.
