Abstract: The Goodman High Throughput Spectrograph (Goodman Spectrograph) is a highly versatile instrument in operation at the SOAR Telescope on Cerro Pachón, Chile. It is capable of doing low to mid-resolution spectroscopy in a range from 3200 Å to 9000 Å. The data reduction pipeline is conceived as an easy-to-run software, that can process an entire night worth of data by execution of a simple command, with some arguments, from a terminal window. It is written almost entirely in Python, following several Python standard conventions. We aim towards using exclusively standard Python packages, such as Astropy and Astropy-affiliated packages, while at the same time allowing for fast and efficient computing. In its present form the pipeline produces fully reduced, wavelength-calibrated spectra. Flux calibration will be an add-on option for a later release.
