Stable release

If you use anaconda to manage your Python environment, run this command in your terminal:

$ conda install -c conda-forge specutils

Otherwise, the recommended method is using pip:

$ pip install specutils

If you don’t have pip installed, this Python installation guide can guide you through the process.

These are the preferred methods to install Specutils, as they will always install the most recent stable release.

From sources

The sources for Specutils can be downloaded from the Github repo.

You can either clone the public repository:

$ git clone git://

Or download the tarball:

$ curl  -OL

Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it with:

$ python install
