`MOSFiT` (**M**odular **O**pen-**S**ource **Fi**tter for **T**ransients) is a Python 2.7/3.x package for fitting, sharing, and estimating the parameters of transients via user-contributed transient models. Data for a transient can either be provided by the user in a wide range of formats (JSON, ASCII tables, CDS, LaTeX), or can be pulled automatically from one of the Open Catalogs (e.g. the [Open Supernova Catalog](https://sne.space), [Open TDE Catalog](https://tde.space), and [Open Nova Catalog](https://opennova.space)) by its name. With the use of an optional upload flag, fits performed by users can then be uploaded back to the Open Catalogs for the benefit of the transient community.<br clear="all">

## Installation

`MOSFiT` is available on `conda` and `pip`, and can be installed using:

```bash
conda install -c conda-forge mosfit
```

or:

```bash
pip install mosfit
```

For a development install of `MOSFiT`, the repository should be cloned from GitHub and then installed into your Python environment via the `setup.py` script:

```bash
git clone https://github.com/guillochon/MOSFiT.git
cd MOSFiT
python setup.py develop
```

## Using MOSFiT

For detailed instructions on using MOSFiT, please see our documentation on RTD: <http://mosfit.readthedocs.io/>
