A python library for PSF subtraction for both exoplanet and disk imaging. It uses a parallelized and optimzied implmentation of KLIP that supports ADI, SDI, and RDI with a variety of tunable parameters. For characterization, forward modelling tools include a suite of tools built off KLIP-FM for astrometry, spectroscopy, planet detection, and disk modelling. pyKLIP is modular and supports data from the Gemini Planet Imager, P1640, Keck/NIRC2, MagAO/VisAO, and SPHERE, with more on the way.
