REBOUNDx incorporates additional physics into REBOUND (ascl:1110.016) simulations. Users can add effects from a list of pre-implemented astrophysical forces or contribute new ones. The main code is written in C, and a Python wrapper is provided for interfacing with other libraries. The REBOUNDx source code is machine independent and a binary format to save REBOUNDx configurations interfaces with the SimulationArchive class in REBOUND, making it possible to share and reproduce results bit by bit.
