A Python module for NASA's ADS that doesn't suck.

Project description

[![Build Status](]( [![PyPi download count image](](

If you’re in research, then you pretty much _need_ NASA’s ADS. It’s tried, true, and people go crazy on the rare occasions when it goes down.

Getting Started

  1. You’ll need an API key from NASA ADS labs. Sign up for the newest version of ADS search [here](, then you can apply for API access by filling out [this form](

  2. When you get your API key, save it to a file called ~/.ads/dev_key or save it as an environment variable named ADS_DEV_KEY

  3. From a terminal type pip install ads (or [if you must](, use easy_install ads)

Happy Hacking!


A short list of [examples]( are included, and there are more to come.
