Astro-Toyz is an astronomy package meant to be an addon to the Toyz web framework, which allows researchers and classrooms to visualize and interact with data stored on a remote server.
Currently the main additions of the astrotoyz package are:
- An astro-viewer tile, which is built on top of the Toyz image viewer but contains additional support for WCS, selecing regions of a plot, and other astro-specific tools
- Support for astropy Tables as a Data Source
In the future the goal is to make Astro-Toyz a front-end for astropy, allowing students to take advantage of data reduction tools with limited to no programming necessary.
Copy or clone the astro-toyz repository to your local machine
git clone https://github.com/fred3m/astro-toyz .
Then enter the 'astro-toyz' directory and run
python setup.py install
to install astro-toyz. If you want to install all of required and optional dependencies you can run:
pip install -e .[all]
To just install the mandatory dependencies run
pip install -e .[base]
Astro-Toyz is still undergoing active development and in the future will contain numerous additional features, including displaying source catalogs on the image viewer.
