This package consists of Python_ replacements for functions that are part of the IDL®_ built-in library or part of astronomical IDL®_ libraries. The emphasis is on reproducing results of the astronomical library functions. Only the bare minimum of IDL®_ built-in functions are implemented to support this.

There are four astronomical libraries targeted:

  • idlutils_ : a general suite of tools heavily used by SDSS_.
  • Goddard utilities_ : The IDL®_ Astronomy User's Libary, maintained by Wayne Landsman and distributed with idlutils_.
  • idlspec2d_ : tools for working with SDSS_, BOSS_ and eBOSS_ spectroscopic data.
  • photoop_ : tools for working with SDSS_ imaging data.

This package affiliated with the astropy_ project and is registered with PyPI_.
