Are there plans for an API for ESASky?

Sarah Kendrew 4 years ago updated by ESASky Team 2 years ago 2

this would allow programmatic access to the tool & the data, for example to use ESASky inside a jupyter notebook.

That exists already: we have an astroquery module in astropy that allows you to do exactly that already. See the documentation here:

and a couple of video tutorials here:

Dear Sarah,

more recently, we developed pyESASky, which allows you not simply to query, but also to use most ESASky functionalities and even to upload your own datasets. More information here:
