A Python module for making HTTP requests to Online Linguistic Database (OLD) instances.

Project description

This package is a client module for OLD web services. It facilitates making HTTP requests to interact with one or more OLD instances.


$ pip install oldclient

For example usage, see the src/ file. In summary:

>>> from oldclient import OLDClient
>>> options = {
...     'url': '<URL_TO_AN_OLD_INSTANCE>',
...     'username': '<YOUR_USERNAME>',
...     'password': '<YOUR_PASSWORD>'}
>>> old_client = OLDClient(options['url'])
>>> old_client.login(options['username'], options['password'])
>>> form = old_client.models['form'].copy()
>>> form['transcription'] = 'Arma virumque cano.'
>>> form['translations'].append({
...     'transcription': 'I sing of arms and a man.',
...     'grammaticality': ''})
>>> response = old_client.create(
...     'forms',
...     data=form)
>>> print(response['id'])

The src/ file will create a stock form on an OLD you specify and have access to:

$ python src/ \
      -u <YOUR_USERNAME> \
      -p <YOUR_PASSWORD>
John Doe created a new form with id 1059 on 2018-11-20T07:05:58.

If you are logged in to your OLD instance in Dative, you should be able to see the form just created (the first three words from Virgil’s Aeneid) at the above URL.
