WCSAxes requires Python 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, or 3.4 and the following Python packages to be installed:
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 WCSAxes with:
pip install wcsaxes
Alternatively, you can install the latest developer version of WCSAxes by cloning the git repository:
git clone http://github.com/astrofrog/wcsaxes
then installing the package with:
cd wcsaxes 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 wcsaxes wcsaxes.test()
If there are no errors, you are good to go!
