Data Directory

Data Directory#

speXtra will create and use an spextra subdirectory in the AstroPy cache directory for this purpose. For example, $HOME/.astropy/cache/spextra. This directory structure will match the database in the server. However speXtra will download the data on demand.

Changing the Data Directory#

Sometimes might be necessary to change the data directory for better accessibility. This can be done by using the following commands

from spextra.configuration import config

config.cache_dir = "path/to/new/datadir"
