# crunch-cube

Open Source Python implementation of the API for working with Crunch Cubes

## Introduction

This package contains the implementation of the Crunch Cube API. It is used to
extract useful information from Crunch Cube responses (we'll refer to them as
_cubes_ in the subsequent text). _Cubes_ are obtained from the **
platform, as JSON responses to the specific _queries_ created by the user.
These queries specify which data the user wants to extract from the
system. The most common usage is to obtain the following:

- Cross correlation between different variable
- Margins of the cross tab _cube_
- Proportions of the cross tab _cube_ (e.g. proportions of each single element to the entire sample size)
- Percentages

When the data is obtained from the platform, it needs to be
interpreted to the form that's convenient for a user. The actual shape of the
_cube_ JSON contains many internal details, which are not of essence to the
end-user (but are still necessary for proper _cube_ functionality).

The job of this library is to provide a convenient API that handles those
intricacies, and enables the user to quickly and easily obtain (extract) the
relevant data from the _cube_. Such data is best represented in a table-like
format. For this reason, the most of the API functions return some form of the
`ndarray` type, from the `numpy` package. Each function is explained in greater
detail, uner its own section, under the API subsection of this document.

## Installation

The Crunch Cube package can be installed by using the `pip install`:

pip install cr.cube

### For developers

For development mode, Crunch Cube needs to be installed from the local checkout
of the `crunch-cube` repository. Navigate to the top-level folder of the repo,
on the local file system, and run:

python develop

## Usage

After the `cr.cube` package has been successfully installed, the usage is as
simple as:

from cr.cube.crunch_cube import CrunchCube

### Obtain the crunch cube JSON from the
### And store it in the 'cube_JSON_response' variable

cube = CrunchCube(cube_JSON_response)

### Outputs:
# np.array([
# [5, 2],
# [5, 3]
# ])

## API

### `as_array`

Tabular, or matrix, representation of the _cube_. The detailed description can
be found

### `margin`

Calculates margins of the _cube_. The detailed description can be found

### `proportions`

Calculates proportions of single variable elements to the whole sample size.
The detailed description can be found

### `percentages`

Calculates percentages of single variable elements to the whole sample size.
