The purpose of the proposed project is to domesticate preCICE – to make preCICE usable without support by the developer team. To achieve this goal, usability and documentation of preCICE have to be improved significantly. Marketing and sustainability strategies are required to build-up awareness of and trust in the software in the community. In addition, best practices on how to make a scientific software prototype usable for a wide academic range, can be derived and shall be applied to similar software projects.
