A light-weight client for receiving alerts from ANTARES.

Project description


A light-weight client for receiving alerts from ANTARES.

ANTARES is an Alert Broker developed by the NOAO for ZTF and LSST.

The client is available for use as a Python library and as a command line tool. Directions for both use cases follow in the Usage section.

Table of Contents:


The ANTARES client supports Python versions 3.4 and up. Python 2.X is not supported.

You can install using pip:

$ pip install antares-client

Verify the client installed correctly:

$ antares --version
antares, version v0.3.1


Visit the full documentation for usage guides, API reference docs, and more.

Version Migration

While the ANTARES client is still in beta (pre-1.0) we will likely make a handful of breaking changes. This section will help ease your migratory pains. Thank you for supporting us in our infancy!

0.2.x to 0.3.x

  • The CLI command for streaming alerts from ANTARES, antares-client, has been renamed antares stream. Additionally, in 0.2.0 you were able to pass topics to antares-client in a comma-separated list--this functionality has been removed in favor of space-separated lists. So, for example, this 0.2.x call:

    antares-client extragalactic,nuclear_transient

    should be replaced with this 0.3.x call:

    antares stream extragalactic nuclear_transient
