Python scripts and utilities for looking up names and linking them to authoritative identifiers. See the top-level namedropper repository for more information.

pip install -e .

If you want to run unit tests or build sphinx documentation, you will also need to install development dependencies:

pip install namedropper[dev]

To run all unit tests:

nosetests   # for normal development
nosetests --with-coverage --cover-package=namedropper --cover-xml --with-xunit   # for continuous integration

To run unit tests for a specific module, use syntax like this:
