This package, currently in the design phase, will eventually be the API for end-users (scientists) to find and download data from the KIS Science Data Centre. In the meantime, issues on this repository may be used to discuss design aspects of the package, technical requirements, user requirements, etc. The API will also be documented here as the design work progresses.
This package contains a custom client for Fido, SunPy's interface for searching and downloading data.
The client allows users access to query the SDC servers for available data and to download files from rucio.
To work correctly it therefore requires the user to have an account on the SDC's rucio server and to have obtained the appropriate authentication certificates, and rucio must be configured to use them (see below).
