PyAstronomy

What is it?

PyAstronomy is a collection of astronomy-related packages written in Python.

Currently, the following subpackages are available:

funcFit:    A convenient fitting package providing support
            for minimization and MCMC sampling.

modelSuite: A Set of astrophysical models (e.g., transit
            light-curve modeling), which can be used
            stand-alone or with funcFit.

AstroLib:   A set of useful routines including a number
            of ports from IDL's astrolib.

Constants:  The package provides a number of often-needed
            constants.

Timing:     Provides algorithms for timing analysis such as
            the Lomb-Scargle and the Generalized Lomb-Scargle
            periodogram

pyaGUI:     A collection of GUI tools for interactive work.

Installation

To install the latest release via pip from PyPI use

pip install PyAstronomy[occult]

or

pip install git+https://github.com/sczesla/PyAstronomy.git#egg=PyAstronomy[occult]

to install the current state from github including non-Python dependencies. Remove [occult] to skip these dependencies.

Alternatively, download the source and use

python setup.py [--with-ext] install

If you specify the --with-ext flag, setup will try to compile non-Python modules.
