Some software I’ve been working on

Hi everyone. I’ve recently been expanding my computational horizons and it has helped me to put some of my trans-dimensional Bayesian inference codes for astronomy into a more usable state for others, with configuration files in YAML, nonzero documentation (though still not thorough), and things like that. I might eventually write up software paper(s) if one becomes popular.

As usual my methods are not the fastest and should be used on smaller datasets where you care about being a purist and getting the most out of it that you can.

Here are a few links:

StarStudded: Probabilistic catalogs for crowded stellar fields

Lensing2: Gravitational lens reconstruction with substructures

Celery: Recover quasi-periodic oscillations from a time series (think asteroseismology)

Any feedback is appreciated!
