Python 3 wrapper for the HIEv Data Capture Application API

Project description

HIEvPy

HIEvPy is a python 3 wrapper around the API interface of the HIEv, a data capture application used by the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment at Western Sydney University.

A short overview of the HIEvPy library, including installation instructions, is given below. Full documentation, with examples, can be found on the project's documentation pages.

Pre-requisites

To use HIEvPY you must have an active account (and subsequently a HIEv API token) on the HIEv application. To discuss registration please contact HIE's data manager, Gerry Devine

Installation

HIEvPy can be installed via pip:

$ pip install --index-url https://test.pypi.org/simple/ hievpy

Note: HIEvPy is currently hosted on Test PyPi. This will soon be moved to the official PyPi repository

Once HIEvPy has been installed, you can import it into a python console or script using:

import hievpy as hp

(using the optional as hp as a shortcut)

HIEvPy functions

Generic functions
  • search: Return a list of HIEv records matching a set of input search parameters
  • search_download: Perform a hievpy search and automatically downloads the matching files
  • upload: Upload a file to HIEv with associated metadata
  • update_metadata: Update metadata on a list of records returned by hievpy search
TOA5 functions
  • toa5_summary: Returns toa5 summary information (variable names, units and measurement types) for a given individual search-returned record.
  • search_loaf_toa5df: Performs a hievpy search and loads results into a pandas dataframe given the file records

See the project's documentation pages for a full explanation of all HIEvPy functions

Examples

The examples folder contains a number of example scripts outlining usage of the different HIEvPy functions.

To run any of the example scripts you need to run hievpy.utils.make_credsfile() which creates a file github won't share called credentials.py and populates it with your HIEv API token

import hievpy as hp
hp.utils.make_credsfile()
