Utils to manipulate and learn from assorted device identifier formats via Reincubate's DeviceIdentifier API.

Project description

Utils to manipulate and learn from assorted device identifier formats via Reincubate’s DeviceIdentifier API.

Technical documentation is available on Reincubate’s site.

Getting started

Try these:

$ pip install deviceidentifier

Calls to the API through this client then become easy:

from deviceidentifier import api

# Look up an Apple serial number
api.lookup( api.TYPE_APPLE_SERIAL, 'C8QH6T96DPNG' )

# Identify the type of an identifier
api.identify_identifier( 'iPhone5,3' )

# Triangulate a bunch of data from a collection of identifiers
api.enhance_metadata(
    apple_identifier='iPhone5,3',
    apple_serial='C8QH6T96DPNG',
    gsma_imei='013554006297015',
    gsma_iccid='8965880812100011146'
)

The API supports anonymous access, and provides limited, rate-limited data when doing so. Tokens can be obtained by contacting Reincubate, and either by setting an environment variable:

$ export RI_DEVID_TOKEN='api-authentication-token'

Or by passing the token value directly into the code:

from deviceidentifier import api

# Look up an Apple serial number
api.lookup( api.TYPE_APPLE_SERIAL, 'api-authenticaton-token', 'C8QH6T96DPNG' )

Using the command-line interface
