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.

SunPy Update - October 2015
- 01 October 2015
I wanted to keep people in the loop about what is happening in the SunPy project, so I thought I would start sending out monthy updates about things that have happened and things that are going to happen. This update might be a little longer than usual due to the fact it’s the first one, and I want to get everyone up to speed. Before I start I just wanted to introduce myself just in case any of you have had the fortune of not knowing. I am Stuart Mumford, I submitted my PhD thesis last week at the University of Sheffield. I am currently lead developer of the SunPy project (again) having taken over from Albert.

Experiments in animating plots and saving movies in SunPy 0.3
- 29 August 2013
Just over a year ago this post described a simple method for saving a movie of SunPy maps. Since then, SunPy and matplotlib have moved on, and I’d like to describe an updated method for animating SunPy maps, and saving the results as an mp4 file.
