To use AlgoDocs Python Client, you need to register at AlgoDocs and get your API Key from here
import algodocs email_address = "your_email_addres_you_registered_with_at_AlgoDocs" key = "your_secret_api_key" client = algodocs.AlgoDocsClient(email_address, key)
Test connection and authenticate as follows:
result = client.me() print(result) #this will print your name, surname and email address
Get all extractors in your AlgoDocs account:
result = client.getExtractors() print(result)
Get all folders in your AlgoDocs account:
result = client.getFolders() print(result)
Upload local file using its full path:
file_path= "full_path_to_your_file.pdf" #accepted file types: PDF, PNG, JPG/JPEG, WORD (.doc, .docx), EXCEL (.xls, .xlsx) extractor_id = "your_extractor_id" #use extractor id that you got from client.getExtractors() folder_id = "your_folder_id" #use folder id that you got from client.getFolders() result=client.uploadDocumentLocal(extractor_id, folder_id, file_path) print(result)
Upload file in base64 format:
with open(file_path, "rb") as file_contents: file_base64 = base64.b64encode(file_contents.read()) result=client.uploadDocumentBase64(extractor_id, folder_id, file_base64, os.path.basename(file_path)) print(result)
Upload file using its publicly accessible url:
url="https://api.algodocs.com/content/SampleInvoice.pdf" result=client.uploadDocumentUrl(extractor_id, folder_id, url) print(result)
Get extracted data of a single document using its id:
document_id="your_document_id" #this document_id comes from result['id'] above, so use your actual document_id that you received in response dictionary object after importing the document to AlgoDocs... result=client.getExtractedDataByDocumentID(document_id) print(result)
Get extracted data of multiple documents using extractor id:
#`folder_id`, `limit` and `date` parameters are optional limit = 10 date = (datetime.now() + timedelta(days=-10)).isoformat() # i.e. get extracted data from documents that were uploaded during last 10 days result=client.getExtractedDataByExtractorID(extractor_id, folder_id, limit, date) print(result)
