PredictHQ API Client for Python

Version PyPI package Build Status Coverage Status

PredictHQ is the demand intelligence company combining real-world events into one global source of truth to help businesses better understand demand and plan for the future.

Installation

The PredictHQ Python client is distributed as a pip package. You can simply install it by running

pip install predicthq

Usage

We support all the endpoints available in our API.

  • oauth2
  • accounts
  • broadcasts
  • events
  • places

Please refer to our API Documentation for a description of each endpoint.

The usecases/ folder is a good starting point to get familiar with the Python SDK. You can also review the tests for a kitchen sink of all the parameters available per endpoint.

Pagination

Additional examples are available in usecases/pagination.py file.

By default the search() method only returns the first page of results, with a default page size of 10.

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for event in phq.events.search():
    print(event.rank, event.category, event.title, event.start.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'))

You can chain the iter_all() generator to iterate over all your events.

for event in phq.events.search().iter_all():
    print(event.rank, event.category, event.title, event.start.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'))

Events endpoint

Additional examples are available in usecases/events folder.

The following example searches for the 'Katy Perry' events (full text search) with rank level of 4 or 5 (rank >= 60) in the concerts category.

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for event in phq.events.search(q='Katy Perry', rank_level=[4, 5], category='concerts'):
    print(event.rank, event.category, event.title, event.start.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'))

Please refer to our Events endpoint documentation for the lists of search parameters and event fields available.

Broadcasts endpoint

Additional examples are available in usecases/broadcasts folder.

The following example searches for the broadcasts with PHQ viewership gte 100 and with event (the physical event the broadcast links to) label 'nfl'.

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for broadcast in phq.broadcasts.search(phq_viewership__gte=100, event__label='nfl'):
    print(broadcast.event.title, broadcast.phq_viewership, broadcast.event.labels, broadcast.dates.start.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'))

Please refer to our Broadcasts endpoint documentation for the lists of search parameters and broadcast fields available.

Places endpoint

Additional examples are available in usecases/places.py file.

The following example searches for the 'New York' places (full text search) in the US.

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for place in phq.places.search(q='New York', country='US'):
    print(place.id, place.name, place.type, place.location)

Please refer to our Places endpoint documentation for the lists of search parameters and place fields available.

Features endpoint

The following example obtain features of events which are active between 2017-12-31 and 2018-01-02, with place_id 4671654.

Requested features:

  • rank_levels for public_holidays
  • count and median of sporting events which has a phq_rank greater than 50

By place_id list (e.g. Austin):

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for feature in phq.features.obtain_features(
        active__gte="2017-12-31",
        active__lte="2018-01-02",
        location__place_id=[4671654],
        phq_rank_public_holidays=True,
        phq_attendance_sports__stats=['count', 'median'],
        phq_attendance_sports__phq_rank={
            "gt": 50
        }
):
    print(feature.date, feature.phq_attendance_sports.stats.count, feature.phq_rank_public_holidays.rank_levels)

by geo:

from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for feature in phq.features.obtain_features(
        active__gte="2017-12-31",
        active__lte="2018-01-02",
        location__geo={
            "lon": -97.74306,
            "lat": 30.26715,
            "radius": "150km"
        },
        phq_rank_public_holidays=True,
        phq_attendance_sports__stats=['count', 'median'],
        phq_attendance_sports__phq_rank={
            "gt": 50
        }
):
    print(feature.date, feature.phq_attendance_sports.stats.count, feature.phq_rank_public_holidays.rank_levels)

The following example obtains features of broadcasts which are active between 2017-12-31 and 2018-01-02, with place_id 4671654

Requested features:

  • count and median of broadcasts which start between 9am - 11am and have a phq_rank greater than 50
from predicthq import Client

phq = Client(access_token="abc123")


for feature in phq.features.obtain_features(
        active__gte="2017-12-31",
        active__lte="2018-01-02",
        hour_of_day_start__gt=9,
        hour_of_day_start__lte=11,
        location__place_id=[4671654],
        phq_viewership_sports_american_football__stats=["count", "median"],
        phq_viewership_sports_american_football__phq_rank={
            "gt": 50
        }
):
    print(feature.date, feature.phq_viewership_sports_american_football.stats.count, feature.phq_viewership_sports_american_football.stats.median)
