What is it?
pyfa, short for python fitting assistant, allows you to create, experiment with, and save ship fittings without being in game. Open source and written in Python, it is available on any platform where Python 2.x and wxWidgets are available, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Latest Version and Changelogs
The latest version along with release notes can always be found on the project's Releases page. pyfa will notify you if you are running an outdated version.
Windows and OS X users are supplied self-contained builds of pyfa on the latest releases page. An
.exe installer is also available for Windows builds. Linux users can run pyfa using their distribution's Python interpreter. There is no official self-contained package for Linux, however, there are a number of third-party packages available through distribution-specific repositories.
There are two different distributives for OS X:
-mac: based on wxPython 220.127.116.11 and has updated libraries. This is the recommended build.
-mac-deprecated: utilizes older binaries running on wxPython 2.8; because of this, some features are not available (currently CREST support and Attribute Overrides). Additionally, as development happens primarily on wxPython 3.0, a few GUI bugs may pop up as
-mac-deprecatedis not actively tested. However, due to some general issues with wxPython 3.0, especially on some newer OS X versions,

$ brew install Caskroom/cask/pyfa
