Design and create a Python client for Hierarchical Progressive Surveys (HiPS). The package will enable users to view astronomical figures in an interactive environment. Currently, similar clients exist, such as Aladin and Aladin Lite, but they are written in Java and JavaScript, respectively. The goal of this project is to provide similar functionality using Python. The current decision is to work only with HiPS images, but if this gets done before the deadline, support for HiPS catalogues will be added as well.
