Project description

Author: Shreyas Bapat orcid-shreyas
Version: 0.1.0

astropy mailing riotchat license docs



Complete documentation, including a user guide and an API reference, can be read on the wonderful Read the Docs.


EinsteinPy requires the following Python packages:

  • NumPy, for basic numerical routines
  • Astropy, for physical units and time handling

oifits is usually tested on Linux on Python 3.6 and 3.7 against latest NumPy.


The easiest and fastest way to get the package up and running is to install python-oifits using conda:

$ conda install oifits --channel conda-forge

Or for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint users, the package is installable from apt:

$ pip install oifits

And it’s done!


If installed correctly, the tests can be run using pytest:

$ pytest -vv
