Alternatively, the source code can be downloaded from GitHub by running the following command:
git clone https://github.com/daniel-muthukrishna/astrorapid.git
Using pip to install astrorapid will automatically install the mandatory dependencies:
If you wish to plot your classifications or train your own classifier with your data you will need matplotlib and scipy as well. These can be installed with
pip install matplotlib pip install scipy
