Dynamic data analysis over the web. The logic to your data dashboards.

Project Description

bamboo is an application that systematizes realtime data analysis. bamboo provides an interface for merging, aggregating and adding algebraic calculations to dynamic datasets.

Clients can interact with bamboo through a REST web interface, a Python library, or a JavaScript library. For more languages request a libary in the language you prefer.

bamboo supports a simple querying language to build calculations (e.g. student teacher ratio) and aggregations (e.g. average number of students per district) from datasets. These are updated as new data is received.

bamboo uses pandas for data analysis, pyparsing to read formulas, and mongodb to serialize data.

bamboo is open source software released under the 3-clause BSD license, which is also known as the “Modified BSD License”.

Dependencies

  • python (tested on version 2.7)
  • mongodb

for numpy, pandas, and scipy:

On Arch Linux: # pacman -S blas lapack gcc-fortran.

On Debian based: # apt-get install gfortran libatlas-base-dev.

On Mac OS X: $ brew install gfortran.

Using as a Python Libary

Installation

$ pip install bamboo-server

Python pip package for bamboo.

For creating plots: $ pip install matplotlib.

Usage

import bamboo as bm

bf = bm.BambooFrame([{'date': '2012-12-21'}])
bff = bf.recognize_dates()
bff.to_json()

>>> '[{"date": {"$date": 1356048000000}}]'

# Turn asyncronous processing off
bm.set_async(False)

url = 'http://formhub.org/mberg/forms/good_eats/data.csv'
dataset = bm.Dataset.create()
dataset.import_from_url(url, na_values=['n/a'])
dataset.schema

>>> {u'_gps_altitude': {u'cardinality': 14, u'label': u'_gps_altitude', ...

# Resample monthly, 'M', aggregating by mean
date_column = 'submit_date'
monthly = ds.resample(date_column, 'M', 'mean').set_index(date_column)
monthly_amounts = monthly.amount.dropna()

# Plot the amount spent per month
mothly_amounts.plot()

Installation

$ ./scripts/install.sh

Example Usage

On the remote server

running the example basic commands

$ ./scripts/commands.sh

using bamboo.JS

var dataset = new bamboo.Dataset({url: 'http://bitly.com/ZfzBwP'});
bamboo.dataset_exists('nonexistentdataset_id');
dataset.query_info();
...

using pybamboo

from pybamboo import PyBamboo
pybamboo = PyBamboo()
response = pybamboo.store_csv_file('http://formhub.org/mberg/forms/good_eats/data.csv')
dataset_id = response['id']
...

posting a dataset

$ curl -X POST -d "url=http://formhub.org/mberg/forms/good_eats/data.csv" http://bamboo.io/datasets
