Astropysics

A python library for astronomy/astrophysics calculations and data analysis.

Web Page: http://packages.python.org/Astropysics/

License: Apache License v2.0

Note that Astropysics is now in "maintainence mode" only. That is, further development is not expected, as my efforts have shifted to the Astropy project. It is a much larger effort that contains most of the functionality in Astropysics and much more. Astropysics will remain so that code written against it will continue to function, though, and I will continue to accept bug fixes as necessary.

Installation

If you have numpy (http://numpy.scipy.org/) and scipy (http://www.scipy.org/) installed, just do:

python setup.py install

On some linux distributions, this may need to be:

sudo python setup.py install

Documentation

Documentation (in the "docs" directory) is meant to be used with sphinx (http://sphinx.pocoo.org). Typical usage is:

python setup.py build_sphinx

to build html documentation and place it in docs/_build/html. Note that this requires Sphinx >=1.0
