python-icat – Python interface to ICAT and IDS

This package provides a collection of modules for writing Python programs that access an ICAT service using the SOAP interface. It is based on Suds and extends it with ICAT specific features.


The latest release version can be found in the Python Package Index (PyPI).


See the online documentation.

Example scripts can be found in doc/examples. This is mostly an unsorted collection of test scripts that I initially wrote for myself to try things out.

Almost all scripts use example_data.yaml as input for test data. Of course for real production, the input will come from different sources, out of some workflow from the site. But this would be dynamic and site specific and thus not suitable, neither for testing nor for the inclusion into example scripts. So its easier to have just one blob of dummy input data in one single file. That is also the reason why the example scripts require PyYAML.
