Python Pachyderm Client

Project description

Python Pachyderm

PyPI Package latest releasee Supported versions Slack Status

Official Python Pachyderm client. Created by kalugny (formerly kalugny/pypachy), and now maintained by Pachyderm Inc.

This library provides the autogenerated gRPC/protobuf code for Pachyderm, along with a higher-level and more pythonic Client class. See the API docs.


pip install python-pachyderm

A Small Taste

Here's an example that creates a repo and adds a file:

import python_pachyderm

# Connects to a pachyderm cluster on localhost:30650. For other options, see
# the API docs.
client = python_pachyderm.Client()

# Create a repo called `test` and insert some data in a commit.
with client.commit('test', 'master') as c:
    client.put_file_bytes(c, '/dir_a/data.txt', b'DATA')

For more sophisticated examples, see the examples directory.


Prior to python-pachyderm 2.0, this library's versioning synced with pachyderm's core versioning; e.g. version 1.8.5 of this library synced with 1.8.5 of pachyderm core. python-pachyderm 2.0 onwards uses semver instead, so versions are not tied to pachyderm core. This was done for two reasons:

  1. Sometimes this library makes breaking or backwards-incompatible changes, which aren't properly conveyed by revision changes.
  2. Pachyderm core is stable enough that most features of this library will work for disparate versions of pachyderm clusters. To help ensure this, this library's CI tests against several versions of pachyderm core.

However, if for whatever reason you need to know which version of pachyderm core a version of python-pachyderm was built with, consult As a broad rule of thumb, we recommend working with the latest version of both pachyderm core and python-pachyderm where possible.


This driver is co-maintained by Pachyderm and the community. If you're looking to contribute to the project, this is a fantastic place to get involved.

Getting started

To run tests, clone the repo, install jq, then run:
