astroplan works on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. It requires Python 2.7 or 3.5+ (2.6 and 3.2 or earlier are not supported, 3.3 and 3.4 may work) as well as the following packages:
First-time Python users may want to consider an all-in-one Python installation package, such as the Anaconda Python Distribution which provides all of the above dependencies.
You can install the stable version of astroplan from PyPI with:
pip install astroplan
or from anaconda:
conda install -c conda-forge astroplan
Alternatively, you can install the latest developer version of astroplan by cloning the git repository:
git clone https://github.com/astropy/astroplan
…then installing the package with:
cd astroplan python setup.py install
If you want to check that all the tests are running correctly with your Python configuration, start up python, and type:
import astroplan astroplan.test()
If there are no errors, you are good to go!
