Fruitbat is an open source Python 2/3 package for estimating redshifts, energies and the galactic dispersion measure contributions of fast radio bursts (FRBs). Fruitbat combines various dispersion measure (DM) and redshift relations with the YMW16 galactic dispersion measure model into a single easy to use API.
