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.)

See the [API docs]( Most of values are auto-generated from protobufs. It's generally easier to rely on the higher-level classes if they provide the functionality you need:
* [PfsClient](
* [PpsClient](

## Installation

pip install python-pachyderm

## Usage and options

All of the PFS functions used in `pachctl` are supported (almost) as-is.

There are some helper functions that help make things more pythonic:

* `commit` which is a context manager wrapper for `start_commit` and `finish_commit`
* `get_files` which supports getting the data from multiple files

### Naming commits

All functions that accept a `commit` argument will accept a tuple of `(repo, branch)` or `(repo, commit_id)`,
a string like `repo/branch` or `repo/commit_id` and a Commit object.


client.list_file(('my_repo', 'branch'), '/') # tuple
client.list_file('my_repo/commit_id', '/') # string
c = client.list_commit('my_repo')[0] # get some commit
client.list_file(c, '/') # and use it directly

### Basic usage example

import python_pachyderm
client = python_pachyderm.PfsClient()
with client.commit('test', 'master') as c:
client.put_file_bytes(c, '/dir_a/data', b'DATA')
client.put_file_url(c, '/dir_b/icon.png', '')

client.get_files('test/master', '/', recursive=True)

As of version 0.1.4, there is also limited support for PPS:

pps_client = python_pachyderm.PpsClient()

## Contributing

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.
