We introduce pycoilib, a python library developed for the computation of self and mutual inductance of coils. The library allows the user to design coils by dividing their three-dimensional geometry into collections of lines, arcs and circles, and by specifying the geometry of the cross-section of the coil wire. In a case study, the self-inductance of a deformable coil is computed as a function of its configuration. Pycoilib has the potential to become a valuable tool for prototyping, as well as teaching.
