The Kepler GO office recommends that users of the PyKE software do so within the STScI Python environment (based around PyRAF). However, for users unwilling to install IRAF and PyRAF on their machine, we have modified PyKE so that it will run both inside PyRAF or standalone within a unix/linux shell environment.
Below are a list of software and Python modules that are required for PyKE. The version number is the minimum version to run all the PyKE tools successfully.
All commands can be given the -h or --help flag and a list of positional and optional arguments is displayed with a short description of the argument's function. Note the --shell argument must always be given even when just using the -h or --help flag, e.g.
% python kepdraw.py --shell --help
