Provides summary of JWST data files

Project description

jwstinfo is a small Python module and command line tool that provides a simple summary of JWST data files. It is intended to be a lightweight tool that does not require the JWST pipeline or data models.

To use the command line tool, simply run the jwstinfo command:

$ jwstinfo /path/to/jwst/data.fits

An example summary will look something like the following:

original filename : jw10001001001_01101_00001_mirifushort_s3d.fits
file creation date: 2018-11-13T14:33:33.924
