Several parameter values can be set to define the way ChiantiPy behaves. The following parameter values can be set in your ~username/.chianti/chiantirc file. These are:
When calculation spectra with spectrum or mspectrum, it is often useful to set the “minAbund” keyword which governs the minimum abundance of any element included in the calculation. Below is a list of elemental abundances for the elements through zinc and the elements that will be included by several value of “minAbund”.
It shoud be noted that CHIANTI does not include a complete set of data for every ion of every element in this list.
ChiantiPy version 0.6.1 requires IPython 4.x / Jupyter and ipyparallel module. However, ChiantiPy version 0.6.1 can be easily modified to be compatible with IPython 2.x and 3.x. At the top of the chianti/core/IpyMspectrum.py file there is a bit of code that need to be modified.
import ipyparallel as parallel #from IPython import parallel
to make version 0.6.1 compatible with IPython 2.x and 3.x, it needs to be modified to look like the following
#import ipyparallel as parallel from IPython import parallel
