Ureka

Ureka 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.


Get Ureka

The easiest way to install Ureka is to run the installer. The Ureka installer identifies your platform, downloads the appropriate binary, and sets up the software on your system. Follow this link for more information:


Downloads

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.
