We introduce WimPyDD, a modular, object–oriented and customisable Python code that accurately predicts the expected WIMP-nucleus scattering rates in WIMP direct–detection experiments including the response of the detector. WimPyDD utilises the framework of Galilean–invariant non–relativistic effective theory, allowing to handle an arbitrary number of effective operators, and can perform the calculation of the excepted rate in virtually any scenario, including inelastic scattering, WIMPs with an arbitrary spin, and a generic velocity distribution in the Galactic halo. The power and flexibility of WimPyDD will be discussed in some explicit examples as well as in several published results.
