sbpy has the following requirements that will be automatically taken
care of with installation using pip:
Python 3.8 or later
ads 0.12 or later, to fetch citation details for bibliography tracking.
astropy 4.3 or later.
astroquery 0.4.5 or later, for retrieval of online data, e.g., ephemerides and orbits.
numpy 1.18 or later.
synphot 1.1.1 or later, for calibration with respect to the Sun and Vega, filtering spectra through bandpasses.
pyradex: For non-LTE production rate calculations related to cometary activity (
The latest stable version of
sbpy can be installed with:
$ pip install sbpy
Most optional dependencies may be installed via:
$ pip install sbpy[all]
pyradex are left for the user to install manually.
The latest development version of
sbpy can be easily installed using:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/NASA-Planetary-Science/sbpy.git
$ conda install sbpy --channel=conda-forge
If you do not have the conda-forge channel available, add it and re-run the installation command:
$ conda config --add channels conda-forge $ conda install sbpy --channel=conda-forge
This way of installing
sbpy is recommended if you plan to contribute to the
module. The current development version of
sbpy can be obtained from GitHub using:
$ git clone https://github.com/NASA-Planetary-Science/sbpy.git
This will create a new directory (
sbpy/). In this directory, run:
$ pip install .
As above, to install optional dependencies, instead use
pip install .[all].
If you plan to work on the code and always want to use the latest version of your code, we recommend installing in “editable” mode with the optional dependences and the testing dependencies:
$ pip install -e .[all,test]
