Ensembler is a Python package that enables method prototyping using 1D and 2D model systems and allows deepening of the understanding of different molecular dynamics (MD) methods, starting from basic techniques to enhanced sampling and free-energy approaches. The ease of installing and using the package increases shareability, comparability, and reproducibility of scientific code developments. Here, we describe the implementation and usage of the package and provide an application example for free-energy calculation. The code of Ensembler is freely available on GitHub at https://github.com/rinikerlab/Ensembler.
