Start using Molly.jl: place_atoms not defined in module Molly?

I started looking into Molly.jl and attempting to run one its examples. I get the error described below. Insight would be nice to receive. Thx!

julia> using Molly

julia> n_atoms = 100


julia> atom_mass = 10.0u"u"

10.0 u

julia> atoms = [Atom(mass=atom_mass, σ=0.3u"nm", ϵ=0.2u"kJ * mol^-1") for i in 1:n_atoms]

100-element Vector{Atom{Quantity{Float64, 𝐈 𝐓, Unitful.FreeUnits{(C,), 𝐈 𝐓, nothing}}, Quantity{Float64, 𝐌, Unitful.FreeUnits{(u,), 𝐌, nothing}}, Quantity{Float64, 𝐋, Unitful.FreeUnits{(nm,), 𝐋, nothing}}, Quantity{Float64, 𝐋² 𝐌 𝐍⁻¹ 𝐓⁻², Unitful.FreeUnits{(kJ, mol⁻¹), 𝐋² 𝐌 𝐍⁻¹ 𝐓⁻², nothing}}}}:

julia> box_size = SVector(2.0, 2.0, 2.0)u"nm"

3-element SVector{3, Quantity{Float64, 𝐋, Unitful.FreeUnits{(nm,), 𝐋, nothing}}} with indices SOneTo(3):

2.0 nm

2.0 nm

2.0 nm

julia> coords = place_atoms(n_atoms, box_size, 0.3u"nm")

Works fine for me - based on your question in the other thread I’m assuming that you’re just dumping all packages into your default environment, therefore ending up with outdated package versions. Don’t do this, create project-specific environments instead installing only the specific packages required for an analysis.

What’s the output of ]st?

True. I am dumping all packages to default.

Output of ]st is below.

I am happy to resort to a less naive approach.

The latest release for Molly is 0.8. You are using an outdated version, which is why the examples in the documentation won’t work. You can either install the latest version of Molly or read an older version of the documentation (in the lower left corner of the docs you’ll find a dropdown menu to select the version).

Have a look at this related thread:

and read the relevant sections of the Pkg.jl manual, e.g.
