The TOM Toolkit and base modules
The TOM Toolkit is a web framework for building TOMs: Target and Observation Managers. TOMs are meant to facilitate collaborative astronomical observing projects. A typical TOM allows its users to curate target lists, request observations of those targets at various observatories as well as manage and organize their data. Read more about TOMs.
Getting started with the TOM Toolkit
The getting started guide will guide you through the process of setting up a TOM for the first time.

Contributing to the project
If you'd like to contribute to the TOM Toolkit, first of all, thanks! Secondly, we have a contribution guide that you might find helpful. We are particularly interested in the contribution of observation and alert modules.
For development information targeted at the maintainers of the project, please see README-dev.md.
The tom_alerts_dash plugin adds responsive ReactJS views to the
tom_alerts module for supported brokers.
The tom-antares plugin adds support for querying the Antares broker for targets of interest.
The tom_nonsidereal_airmass plugin provides a templatetag that supports plotting for non-sidereal objects. The plugin is fully supported by the TOM Toolkit team; however, non-sidereal visibility calculations require the PyEphem library, which is minimally supported while its successor is in development. The library used for the TOM Toolkit sidereal visibility, astroplan, does not yet support non-sidereal visibility calculations.
This module provides the ability to submit observations to the Liverpool Telescope Phase 2 system. It is in a very alpha state, with little error handling and minimal instrument options, but can successfully submit well-formed observation requests.
The tom_registration plugin introduces support for two TOM registration flows--an open registration, and a registration that requires administrator approval.
