utilities for working with the NIF ontology

Project description


PyPI version

Tools for working with the NIF-Ontology.


The use of nifstd-tools is highly intertwined with the pyontutils respository. If you have a use case (e.g. ontree) where nifstd-tools works as a stand-alone package install it using pip install --user nifstd-tools. Otherwise see below for the full development installation instructions.


See pyontutils configuration.

Development Installation

Follow the parent instructions and refer to the rest of this section if you encounter issues.

Note that the optional development packages are not strictly required. If you have installation issues development can proceed normally without them, but some database queries will be slower because they use a pure python mysql connector.

If you don't want to use pipenv (which is probably most people) then the quickest way to get up and running with a development install is pip install --user --editable . from the folder that contains this readme.


See the documentation for NIF-Ontology processes.
