Unofficial Globus Nexus Client (based on SDK clients)

Project description

Disclaimer: This Is Not An Official Product

This is a personal project for talking to the Globus Nexus API with all of the benefits of the Globus SDK. It is not a Globus maintained product.

If you don’t know what that is, stop reading here and go away. Otherwise, this will hopefully alleviate the pains of trying to use Nexus.

Globus Nexus Client

When Globus added the new SDK it did not include functionality for the Nexus API.

This package contains a client for talking to Nexus, based on the same core client model provided by the SDK. You should therefore think of this as a third-party extension to the SDK for talking to Nexus.

Importing and Usage


Because this is not part of the SDK, you don’t get at it with a simple from globus_sdk import NexusClient.

Instead, imports come from the package namespace:

from globus_nexus_client import NexusClient

You can then use NexusClient methods as usual.

The client object supports all of the typical Authorizers that the SDK provides, and this package provides an additional Authorizer for using Nexus-issued tokens:

from globus_nexus_client import NexusClient, LegacyGOAuthAuthorizer

client = NexusClient(authorizer=LegacyGOAuthAuthorizer('<nexus token>'))


There is no web doc or other maintained documentation for this project, but there are docstrings on all methods of the client object. Either browse the source or use help() in the python REPL.
