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. download_dir = ~/heliopy/data ; Choose whether to convert all downloaded data to a hdf store, enabling much ; faster file reading after the initial load, but requiring the additional ; h5py and py-tables dependencies use_hdf = False ; Cluster user cookie cluster_cookie = none
Alternatively the copy included with HelioPy can be directly edited. To get the location of the configuration file in a python session run
from heliopy.util import config print(config.get_config_file())
This will print the location of the configuration file that HelioPy is reading in.
