Build Status Latest release on crates.io

Screenshot of Aflak

IN ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT: Features and API highly unstable!

Download binary (nightly)

Getting started

# Open a FITS file with aflak
aflak -f <FITS_FILE>
# See CLI help
aflak --help

You may find a demo video here.

Disclaimer: Most testing until now has been done with FITS files sampled from the SDSS MaNGA, and some files from ALMA. Standard-compliant FITS should be openable without issue, if you meet any issue, please file an issue, provide the FITS file, a screenshot and explain what's wrong/unexpected.

NB:

  • The first time you run aflak, the window layout may not be what you prefer. You may want to resize / move some windows with the mouse the very first time your run aflak. Hopefully, aflak remembers the arrangement of your windows between sessions.
  • It is advised to use aflak with a large screen more 2000-pixel large for a better experience. 3000-pixel is even better!
