The asdf-astropy Extension Package

The asdf-astropy package contains code that is used to serialize astropy objects so that they can be represented and stored using the Advanced Scientific Data Format (ASDF).

If asdf-astropy is installed, no further configuration is required in order to process ASDF files that contain astropy objects. Note that the ASDF package has been designed to automatically detect the presence of tags defined by packages like asdf-astropy and automatically make use of that package’s support infrastructure to operate correctly.

Documentation on the ASDF Standard can be found here. Documentation on the ASDF Python library can be found here.
