*The CL tools for breaker* :Author: David Young :Date Created: October 29, 2015 Usage: breaker init breaker update [-n] [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker skymap <gwid> <pathToLVMap> breaker plot [-a] (timeline|history|sources) [-w <gwid>] [-t <telescope>] [-p <projection>] [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker plot comparison <gwid> <pathToMapDirectory> [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker faker <ps1ExpId> [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker stats <gwid> [<telescope>] [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker listen <far> (<mjdStart> <mjdEnd> | <inLastNMins>) [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] breaker listen -d <far> [<sec>] [-s <pathToSettingsFile>] COMMANDS -------- init setup the breaker settings file for the first time update update the PS1 footprint table in breaker database and associate with GW-IDs. Optionally download overlapping NED source and also add to the database skymap generate an all sky FITS & PDF image map given the path to the LV likeihood map (Meractor and Mollweide projections respectively) plot enter plotting mode timeline plot from the epoch of the wave detection forward in time history plot from now back in time over the last days, weeks and months comparison produce a multi-panel plot to compare wave maps stats generate some coverage stats for a given wave survey campaign sources overplot map with NED sources found within the wave campaign footprint faker generate a catalogue of simulated transient sources in PS1 exposure ID footprint listen connect to grace DB and download maps found within the given time range ARGUMENTS --------- far false alarm rate limit in Hz (1e-5 Hz ~= 1 per day) -w <gwid> the gravitational wave ID pathToSettingsFile path to the yaml settings file pathToMapDirectory path to a directory containing localisation maps ps1ExpId a panstarrs exposure ID mjdStart start of an MJD range mjdEnd end of the MJD range inLastNMins in the last N number of minutes pathToLVMap path to the LV likelihood map sec time in seconds -t <telescope> select an individual telescope (default is all telescopes) [ps1|atlas] -p <projection> skymap projection. Default *mercator*. [mercator|gnomonic|mollweide] FLAGS ----- -h, --help show this help message -s, --settings the settings file -n, --updateNed update the NED database steam -d, --daemon listen in daemon mode -a, --all plot all timeline plot (including the CPU intensive -21-0 days and all transients/footprints plots)
The easiest way to install breaker is to use pip:
pip install breaker
Or you can clone the github repo and install from a local version of the code:
git clone email@example.com:thespacedoctor/breaker.git cd breaker python setup.py install
To upgrade to the latest version of breaker use the command:
pip install breaker --upgrade
If you’re having trouble with the installation here are a few things to try:
Astropy and Clang. On Mac OS you may have to set your C-compiler to clang before astropy will install. So before the breaker installation, try:
setenv CC clang
or, for bash:
Then try and install breaker again.
healpy. If you’re having trouble installing healpy try installing the latest version from github. Download and extract the tarball.
Untar, set your MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET environment variable and install:
tar -xvf healpy-1.9.0.tar.gz cd healpy-1.9.0 setenv MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET 10.11 python setup.py install
If you want to tinker with the code, then install in development mode. This means you can modify the code from your cloned repo:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:thespacedoctor/breaker.git cd breaker python setup.py develop
