A Python wrapper for tempo2
libstempo is a Python wrapper around the tempo2 pulsar timing package.
libstempo is installed most simply via conda as the
is bundled in the conda recipe. Simply use
conda install -c conda-forge libstempo
libstempo with pip (or from source), tempo2 must be installed as a prerequisite. Currently there are two recommended methods to do this.
- Install via script.
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vallis/libstempo/master/install_tempo2.sh | shThis will install the tempo2 library in a local directory (
$HOME/.local). This method is recommended if you do not need to use tempo2 directly but just need the installation for
libstempo. You can also set the path to the install location. For example, to install in
/usr/local, you could run:
# need sudo if installing in a restricted location curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vallis/libstempo/master/install_tempo2.sh | sudo sh -s /usr/local
- Install via the instructions on the tempo2 homepage. If this method is used, the
TEMPO2environment variable will need to be set to use
In either case, it is best practice to set the
variable so that it can be easily discovered by
libstempo package can be installed via
pip install libstempo
astropy for units:
pip install libstempo[astropy]
If you have installed
tempo2 in a location that is not in your path or not the default from
install_tempo2.sh, you will need to install
libstempo with an environment variable (e.g. if
tempo2 is in
TEMPO2_PREFIX=/opt/local pip install libstempo
export TEMPO2_PREFIX=/opt/local pip install libstempo
