From version 0.7.0 of PyWiFeS, we have migrated the code to a github repository:

To download the code, you need to first install git. To install the PyWiFeS pipeline itself, create the directory you want to store it in then clone the PyWiFeS git repository with this command:

  git clone


To be able to run the pipeline, you need to do the following:

  1. Add the '​src/'​ subdirectory to your PYTHONPATH
  2. Tell the code where the reference data is stored by defining the environment variable '​PYWIFES_DIR'​ to point to the location of the '​reference_data/'​ directory. ​ Alternatively if you cannot define environment variables (Windows??) then you can update the reference directory location in the file '​src/​'​.
