chemfp is a set of tools and a Python API for working with cheminformatics fingerprints.

It can generate fingerprints using OEChem/OEGraphSim, Open Babel, and
RDKit. It can also extract fingerprints from tags in an SD file. Most
people use it for its high-performance Tanimoto and Tversky similarity
search algorithms.

All versions of chemfp are distributed under the MIT license. (It
contains some third-party components which are under equally
permissive licenses, like the BSD or Python licenses.)

In addition, versions 1.0 and 1.1 were available at no cost.

Version 2.0 was the first release as commercial open source
software. Customers needed to pay me for access to the software, which
they received under the MIT license. The goal was to provide a revenue
stream so I could continue to develop chemfp.

I now maintain two versions of chemfp. The 1.x line contines to be
available at no cost, and the 3.x line is commercial open source.

Chemfp development uses a private repository, for obvious reasons. I
use Read The Docs to view the documentation, but Read The Docs needs
access to a public repository.

My solution is to export the documentation from chemfp into the
chemfp_documentation repository.
