Installation

Install the code

using pip: pip install ztfquery (favored)

or for the latest version:

go wherever you want to save the folder and then

git clone https://github.com/MickaelRigault/ztfquery.git
cd ztfquery
python setup.py install

Set your environment

You should also create the global variable $ZTFDATA (usually in your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.cshrc). Data you will download from IRSA will be saved in the directory indicated by $ZTFDATA following the IRSA data structure.

Login and Password storage

Your credentials will requested the first time you need to access a service (IRSA, Marshal, etc.). They will then be stored, crypted, under ~/.ztfquery. Use ztfquery.io.set_account(servicename) to reset it.

You can also directly provide account settings when running load_metadata and download_data using the auth=[your_username, your_password] parameter. Similarly, directly provide the username and password to the ztf ops page when loading NightSummary using the ztfops_auth parameter.
