Python Client for European XFEL Calibration Catalogue Web App available at

Project description

Dependency responsible for encapsulating and managing the interaction with the Calibration Constants Catalogue Web Application throw RESTful API calls.




Python project

  1. Install requirements, if never done before

1.1. For OS X distributions:

sudo port install python35
sudo port

sudo port select --set python3 python35

sudo port install py35-pip
sudo port select --set pip pip35

sudo port install py35-nose
sudo port select --set nosetests nosetests-3.5

pip install pycodestyle

1.2. For Linux distributions:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3.5
  1. Make calibration_client library available in your python environment

2.1. Install it via pip:

# Install dependencies from local wheels files
pip install --no-index --upgrade --find-links ./external_dependencies/*

# Install dependencies from the pypi
pip install -r requirements.txt

Or as a normal python project (via .egg file):

python install
python install --user

Running this command the “compiled” calibration_client-6.1.3-py3.4.egg file is generated under the current Python installation site-packages folder.

2.2. Install it as a normal python project (via Wheel):

python bdist_wheel

Running this command 2 folders are generated under the current Python installation site-packages folder:

  • calibration_client with the sources;
  • calibration_client-6.1.3.dist-info/ with Wheels configuration files.
  1. To identify your Python site-packages folder run:

    python -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print(get_python_lib())"


To use this project you need to import it.

If you want interact directly with API methods you should import CalibrationClientApi class:
from calibration_client.calibration_client_api import CalibrationClientApi
If you want interact with Model classes you should import CalibrationClient class:
from calibration_client.calibration_client import CalibrationClient
Or import everything:
import calibration_client

Development & Testing

When developing, and before commit changes, please validate that:

  1. All tests continue passing successfully (to validate that run nosetests):

    # Go to the source code directory
    cd calibration_client
    # Run all tests
    nosetests .
    # Run all tests and get information about coverage for all files inside calibration_client package
    pip install python-dateutil
    pip install nose-cov
    nosetests --with-cov --cover-erase --cover-inclusive --cov-report term-missing --cov calibration_client
    # Run all tests with xunit
    nosetests --where=./calibration_client/ --with-xunit --xunit-file=pythonTest.xml
    # If you don't want use nosetests you can simply run the test class
    python -m calibration_client.tests.modules.calibration_constant_version
  2. Code keeps respecting pycodestyle code conventions (to validate that run pycodestyle):

    pycodestyle .
  3. To generate all the wheels files for the dependencies, execute:

    # Generate Wheels to its dependencies
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies -r requirements.txt
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies --find-links=./external_dependencies -r requirements.txt
    # Generate Wheels to itself and dependencies
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies .
    pip wheel --wheel-dir=./external_dependencies --find-links=./external_dependencies .

Guarantee that you have the desired versions in requirements.txt and files.

Registering library on

To register this python library, the following steps are necessary:

# Install twine
python -m pip install --upgrade twine

# Generates egg file in the dist/ folder
python install

# Upload new version
twine upload dist/*

# In case a teste is necessary, it is possible to test it against
twine upload --repository-url dist/* --verbose
