Python API client for Enhydris

  • Free software: GNU General Public License v3

This package has some functionality to make it easier to use the Enhydris API.


pip install enhydris-api-client


from enhydris_api_client import EnhydrisApiClient

with EnhydrisApiClient("") as api_client:
    api_client.login("joe", "topsecret")

    # Get a dict with attrs of station with id=42
    station = api_client.get_model(Station, 42)

    # Create a new station
    api_client.post_model(Station, data={"name": "my station"})



Creates and returns an api client. It can also be used as a context manager, though this is not necessary. If not used as a context manager, you might get warnings about unclosed sockets.

EnhydrisApiClient objects have the following methods:

.login(username, password)

Logins to Enhydris. Raises an exception if unsuccessful.


Returns a dict with the data for the station with the given id.


Creates a new station, with its data given by dictionary data, and returns its id.

.put_station(station_id, data)

Replaces the station’s attributes with data (a dictionary). Any unspecified attributes are set to null.

.patch_station(station_id, data)

Same as put_station() except that any attribute not specified in data is untouched.


Deletes the specified station.

.get_timeseries(station_id, timeseries_id)

Returns a dict with the data for the given time series.

.post_timeseries(station_id, data)

Creates a new time series, with its data given by dictionary data, and returns its id.

.delete_timeseries(station_id, timeseries_id)

Deletes the specified time series.

.read_tsdata(station_id, timeseries_id, start_date=None, end_date=None)

Retrieves the time series data into a htimeseries object that it returns. If start_date and/or end_date are specified, only the part of the time series between these dates is retrieved.

.post_tsdata(station_id, timeseries_id, ts)

Posts a time series to Enhydris, appending the records to any already existing. ts is a htimeseries object.

.get_ts_end_date(station_id, timeseries_id)

Returns a datetime object which is the last timestamp of the time series. If the time series is empty it returns None.
