Anonlink Client

Client-facing API to interact with anonlink system including command line tools and Rest API communication. Anonlink system needs the following three components to work together:

This package provides an easy-to-use API to interact with the above packages to complete a record linkage job.

The way to interact with anonlink system is via Command Line Tool anonlink. You can encode data containing PI (Personal Identifying Information) locally using anonlink encode and generate candidate blocks locally to scale up record linkage using anonlink block.


Install with pip/poetry etc.:

pip install anonlink-client


CLI Tool

After installation, you should have a anonlink program in your path. For example, to encode PII data alice.csv locally with schema schema.json and secret horse, run:

$ anonlink encode 'alice.csv' 'horse' 'schema.json' 'encoded-entities.json'

It will generate the CLK output and store in clk.json. To find out how to define the schema for your PII data, please refer this page for details.
