Python interface for the Common Pipeline Library
Python-cpl is an Astropy Affiliated Package
that can list, configure and execute recipes from ESO data reduction
pipelines from Python
(python2 and python3). The input, calibration and output data can be
specified as FITS files or as
astropy.io.fits objects in memory.
The ESO Common Pipeline Library (CPL) comprises a set of ISO-C libraries that provide a comprehensive, efficient and robust software toolkit. It forms a basis for the creation of automated astronomical data-reduction tasks. One of the features provided by the CPL is the ability to create data-reduction algorithms that run as plugins (dynamic libraries). These are called "recipes" and are one of the main aspects of the CPL data-reduction development environment.
