$ conda install pyasdf pyside2
$ pip install asdf-sextant

It is important to install pyside2 via conda if you use conda - otherwise it is easy to install some version of Qt with conda and another via pip which just crashes.


Start it with:

$ asdf-sextant

Alternatively you can directly open a file with it:

$ asdf-sextant filename.h5



The GUI has the following dependencies:

  • Python 3.7 or 3.8
  • pyasdf
  • pyside2
  • pyqtgraph>=0.11.0rc0
  • qdarkstyle


Rebuild the UI file in case its necessary with:

pyside2-uic -g python asdf_sextant_window.ui
