The official DataSift API library for Python.
This is the official Python library for accessing DataSift APIs.
To get started choose one of our quick start guides:
Install with pip:
pip install datasift
Install from source:
git clone https://github.com/datasift/datasift-python.git cd datasift-python python setup.py install
Full documentation is available at http://datasift.github.io/datasift-python
Supported Operating Environment
This version of the client library has been tested, and is known to work against the following language versions and Operating Systems:
- Python 2.6
- Python 2.7
- Python 3.4
- Python 3.5
- pypy 2.7
- OS X
- Windows 7/8/10 (only with python 2.x) (upstream bug here: <http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/7626>)
This code should conform to pep8, with the exception of E501, the 79 character line limit.
It can be style checked with the pep8 module by running pep8 --show-source --ignore=E501 datasift/*.py
Supports Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.3, as well as pypy. Uses requests, autobahn, six, twisted, pyopenssl and dateutil.
On non-Windows systems, the twisted and pyopenssl packages require the Python and OpenSSL development headers before they can be installed. These are usually provided by distribution package managers in a separate package to the main packages.
Windows users may need to use Python 2.7 due to compatability issues with the Twisted library
