What is Gammapy?

Gammapy is a community-developed, open-source Python package for gamma-ray astronomy.

To learn more about Gammapy, have a look at the About Gammapy page, which includes a link to the Gammapy proceeding from ICRC 2015.

Gammapy works with Python 2 and 3, on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows and is easy to install (see instructions on the Installation page). (Caveat: for modeling and fitting we use Sherpa at the moment, which is not available on Windows and porting to Python 3 is still work in progress.)

Once you have it running, we suggest you head over to the Getting Started tutorial.
