Astropy (http://www.astropy.org) is a package intended to contain much of the core functionality and some common tools needed for performing astronomy and astrophysics with Python.
For installation instructions, see the online documentation
docs/install.rst in this source distribution.
For system packagers: Please install Astropy with the command:
$ python setup.py --offline install
This will prevent the astropy_helpers bootstrap script from attempting to reach out to PyPI.
For an overview of the testing and build status of all packages associated with the Astropy Project, see http://dashboard.astropy.org.
