MediaMeter CLIFF API Client Library

Project Description

This is a simple Python client for the MediaMeter CLIFF-CLAVIN geocoder.

Usage

If you just want to use this library to talk to a CLIFF server you have running somewhere, first install it

pip install mediameter-cliff

Then instantiate and use it like this:

from mediameter.cliff import Cliff
my_cliff = Cliff('http://myserver.com',8080)
my_cliff.parseText("This is about Einstien at the IIT in New Delhi.")

This will return results like this:

You can also just get info from the GeoNames database inside CLIFF:

from mediameter.cliff import Cliff
my_cliff = Cliff('http://myserver.com',8080)
my_cliff.geonamesLookup(4943351)

This will give you results like this:

Development

If you want to work on this API client, then first clone the source repo from GitHub and install the dependencies

pip install -r requirements.pip

Then copy settings.config.sample to settings.config and put in the url and port of your CLIFF server. Now you should be able to develop!

Distribution

  1. Run python test.py to make sure all the test pass
  2. Update the version number in mediameter/__init__.py
  3. Make a brief note in the version history section in the README file about the changes
  4. Run python setup.py sdist to test out a version locally
  5. Then run python setup.py sdist upload -r pypitest to release a test version to PyPI’s test server
  6. Run pip install -i https://testpypi.python.org/pypi mediacloud somewhere and then use it with Python to make sure the test release works.
  7. When you’re ready to push to pypi run python setup.py sdist upload -r pypi
  8. Run pip install mediameter-cliff somewhere and then try it to make sure it worked.
