Working with numpy-like arrays

This feature should be considered experimental. Please report any bug you may find on xarray’s github repository.

Most of the API does support duck array objects, but there are a few areas where
the code will still cast to
dimension coordinates, and thus all indexing operations:
functions and methods that depend on external libraries or features of
numpynot covered by
scipy): duck arrays in data variables and non-dimension coordinates will be casted in addition to not supporting duck arrays in dimension coordinates
incompatibilities between different duck array libraries:
Extensions using duck arrays#
Here’s a list of libraries extending
xarray to make working with wrapped duck arrays
