The What, Why, and How of SunPy Affiliated Packages
- 18 August 2020
SunPy affiliated packages are well-maintained, open-source software packages that build upon or extend the functionality of the SunPy core library. The main idea behind affiliated packages is to provide additional tools and functionality to the solar physics community that is considered outside the scope of the SunPy core library, but builds upon it. Affiliated packages are aimed to integrate well with the SunPy ecosystem and together with the core library offer a diverse software ecosystem for which to perform solar data analysis. Affiliated packages are reviewed and registered with the SunPy project.
