Project description

CI Status Documentation Status PyPi Package Compatible Python Versions

This is an experimental toolkit to help developers build Action Providers for use in Globus Automate including for invocation via Globus Flows.

As this is experimental, no support is implied or provided for any sort of use of this package. It is published for ease of distribution among those planning to use it for its intended, experimental, purpose.

Basic Usage

Install with pip install globus_action_provider_tools

You can then import the toolkit’s components and helpers from globus_action_provider_tools. For example:

from flask import Flask
from globus_action_provider_tools.data_types import (

# Create an ActionProviderDescription
description = ActionProviderDescription(
    title="My Action Provider",
        "$id": "whattimeisitnow.provider.input.schema.json",
        "$schema": "",
        "title": "Exmaple Action Provider",
        "type": "object",
        "properties": {"message": {"type": "string"}},

Testing, Development, and Contributing

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to contribute!

The globus_action_provider_tools package is developed using poetry so to get started you’ll need to install poetry. Once installed, clone the repository and run make install to install the package and its dependencies locally in a virtual environment (typically .venv).

And that’s it, you’re ready to dive in and make code changes. Once you’re satisfied with your changes, be sure to run make test and make lint as those need to be passing for us to accept incoming changes. Once you feel your work is ready to be submitted, feel free to create a PR.
