rfpipe: radio interferometric transient search library

rfpipe is a library for radio interferometric transient searches. It takes visibility data as input and searches for impulsive, astrophysical sources. Currently, rfpipe is optimized for VLA data and image-based searches, but the design supports other telescopes, algorithms, and computing environments.

rfpipe is the core transient search library of the realfast project. For more information, see our ApJS paper or visit http://realfast.io. This software can be cited via the ASCL: ascl.
