# Configuring¶

HelioPy comes with a sample ‘heliopyrc’ file. In order to customise the file make a copy of it at ~/.heliopy/heliopyrc and edit that copy. The default contents of the file are:

; Example heliopy configuration file. To make the configuration active, either
; edit this copy or move a copy to ~/.heliopy/heliopyrc
; The config parser will look in ~/.heliopy first.

[DEFAULT]
; The working directory is the parent directory in which all downloaded
; data will be stored.

; Choose whether to convert all downloaded data to a hdf store, enabling much
; h5py and py-tables dependencies
use_hdf = False
