Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

Installing the Fermitools

The FSSC now uses the Conda package manager to install the Fermitools, and the source code is now hosted on GitHub.

Please see the Fermitools Wiki for the Quickstart Guide, detailed Installation Instructions, and other documentation about the Tools.

If you encounter problems, please see the Troubleshooting and Error Reporting guides.

For more information about why the change to Conda was made, please read The Fermitools and Conda.

The release of new versions of the Fermitools will be announced on the fermi-soft mailing list. Please see the Fermi newletter page if you would like to be added to the list.

The FSSC has also created a Docker container pre-loaded with many of the necessary tools required to do Fermi Analysis. It includes the Science Tools, the HEASARC FTOOLS, Python 2.7 and associated libraries along with a host of other programs. This container will run on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. You can find it (with instructions) on github or Docker Hub.

The previous version of the Science Tools, v11r5p3, released Feb 15, 2018 is still available for download.
