** [https://github.com/suncasa/suncasa SunCASA] A wrapper around [https://casa.nrao.edu/ CASA (the Common Astronomy Software Applications package)] for synthesis imaging and visualizing solar spectral imaging data. CASA is one of the leading software tool for "supporting the data post-processing needs of the next generation of radio astronomical telescopes such as ALMA and VLA", an international effort led by the [https://public.nrao.edu/ National Radio Astronomy Observatory]. The current version of CASA uses Python (2.7) interface. More information about CASA can be found on [https://casa.nrao.edu/ NRAO's CASA website ]. Note, CASA is available ONLY on UNIX-BASED PLATFORMS (and therefore, so is SunCASA).
