Abstract: Recently we have carried out a campaign of measurements of variable star spectra at the Oukaimeden observatory. To analyse thousands of spectra, we developed a graphical interface using Python. This interface is able to plot figures of our pre-treated spectra in 1D, and as a superposition in 1D and 2D. Thus, this interface can determine the necessary parameters in the spectroscopic study of short-period variable stars (e.g., the pulsation phase, the Blazhko phase, the correction for heliocentric velocity). Moreover, we can use this interface to convert the pre-treated FITS files into text files as well as create Excel tables containing the calculated parameters. This interface is easy and fast to use, and can provide high quality figures.
