Project description

# Astrocats: Open Astronomy Catalogs #

[![Build Status](]( [![Coverage Status](]( [![Python Version](]( [![Python Version](](

The Astrocats package enables astronomers to construct their own curated catalogs of astronomical data with the intention of producing shareable catalogs of that data in human-readable formats. Astrocats is used by several existing open astronomy catalogs, including:

The process for creating one’s own open astronomy catalog involves checking out this package and designing a “module” for it that is specific to that catalog’s needs, a [Wiki is available]( with instructions for doing so. At the moment the most developed module is the Open Supernova Catalog module; to set up astrocats with the supernovae module, one needs to check out two repositories:

`shell git clone cd astrocats git clone `

Astrocats will soon be listed on PyPi, at which point the install instructions will involve pip and a setup script, for now the install must be performed manually.
