A common language independent and cross-network social-media data scheme.
A python compiled version of the common location based social network (LBSN) data structure concept (ProtoBuf) to handle cross network Social Media data in Python. There are several motivations for prividing a common LBSN interchange data structure. Firstly, the GDPR directly requests Social Media Network operators to allow users to transfer accounts and data inbetween services. While there are attempts by Google, Facebook etc. (see data-transfer-prject), it is not currently possible. With this structure concept, we follow an independent road. A primary goal is to systematically characterize LBSN data aspects in a common scheme that enables privacy-by-design for connected software, transfer scripts and database design.
pip install --upgrade lbsnstructure
Import to python projecty with:
.. or compile newest version from Protofiles
- Clone git Repository
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org/lbsn/concept
- Install Protocoll Buffers
- Compile structure to python package
protoc --python_out=examples/python lbsnstructure/structure.proto
- Install with
pip install .in examples/python
For development & testing, make a local clone of this repository
git clone email@example.com:lbsn/concept.git
Go to subfolder
examples\python and symlink the folder to your
Python's site-packages folder with:
python setup.py develop
Now, lbsnstructure should be available through your python path and directly link to the local git clone directory.
