GWpy is a Python software package that provides an intuitive, object-oriented interface through which to access, process, and visualise data from gravitational-wave detectors. GWpy provides a number of new utilities for studying data, as well as an improved user interface for a number of existing tools. The ease-of-use, along with extensive online documentation and examples, has resulted in widespread adoption of GWpy as a basis for Python software development in the international gravitational-wave community.
