Gazu, steroïds for your CG tools

Gazu is a Python client that allows to fetch data easily from your CG production environment (tasks, shots, assets, casting and dependencies). More than giving access to data, it allows to perform operations like generating file paths, marking a task as started, setting a thumbnail on a shot and many more. To make it short, it will boost your pipeline tools!

It is made to be used with the Zou API. It requires an up and running instance of Zou to run properly.

Install Gazu in your application environment via pip:

pip install gazu

The client requires a few extra configuration before being used. It needs to know where is located the API server and to log in:

import gazu

gazu.log_in("", "password")

Let’s finish with an example. Fetch all the open projects:

projects = gazu.project.all_open_projects()

Then jump to the documentation to see what features are available!


Documentation is available on a dedicated website:
