UrekaUreka is a collection of useful astronomy software that is generally centered around Python and IRAF. The software provides everything you need to run the data reduction packages provided by STScI and Gemini.
System privileges are not normally required to install Ureka, and there are minimal operating system requirements. Ureka is a binary distibution for Macs and Linux.
The easiest way to install Ureka is to run one of our installers. These scripts identify your platform, download the appropriate binary, and setup the software on your system. Follow one of these links for more information:
- Install the latest version, 1.0
If you need to do something non-standard, you might want to download one of the Ureka binaries and manually install the software, instead of using an installer.
Ureka source files are also available. There are currently no provisions for building Ureka from source, however, so these are only useful for information purposes.
