ap_pipe processes raw images that have been ingested into a Butler repository with corresponding calibration products and templates. It produces calexps, difference images and source catalogs, and an association database.
The user must specify the main repository with ingested images (and the location of the calibration products and templates if they reside elsewhere), the name of the association database (may be either created from scratch or connected to for continued associating), and a Butler data ID.
Example command-line usage
ap_pipe.py repo --calib repo/calibs --rerun processed -c associator.level1_db.db_name=apdb/association.db --id visit=123456 ccdnum=42 filter=g --template templates
