A python program which calculates the tidal deformability of a gravity bound sphere of perfect fluid containing upto two fluids coupled through gravity only. Equations of state of the two fluids can be arbitrary set along with central pressures of the two fluids. The program includes a function to enforce the condition of a fixed ratio of the masses of the two fluids. See ReadMe for usage instructions.

v1.2: Added MPA1 and AP3 equations of state.

v1.3: Added a function to calculate the mass beyond which we have instability for neutron stars.
