Helipad is an agent-based modeling framework for Python with powerful visualization capabilities.

Agent-based modeling frameworks usually trade off power for ease of use. NetLogo, for example, is very easy to get started with and has impressive visualization capabilities, but the language is limited. Python, on the other hand, is completely open-ended and powerful language, but even agent-based modeling frameworks in Python generally have a much steeper learning curve

Helipad bridges that gap. Its hook-based, object-oriented API and extensible visualization capabilities make it dead-simple to get started writing and interacting with your agent-based model, while also allowing as much flexibility as you need.
