This lib allows you to integrate qlik with jupyter notebook.

Project description

PTQ

PyToQlik

PyToQlik is a library that allows you to integrate Qlik Desktop with Jupyter notebooks. With it you can:

  • Open and edit a Qlik app inside a Jupyter notebook;
  • Create a Qlik object with data from a pandas DataFrame data structure and/or;
  • Import data from a Qlik object and create a pandas DataFrame to work with in Python.

Latest Updates (24/jun/2021)

:star2: Just added some basic Qlik Cloud SaaS functionalities! :star2:

Be a more powerful data scientist by importing and extracting data from Qlik objects in Cloud applications inside your tenant!

Getting Started

For this library to work you might want to have a functioning Qlik Desktop App installed and running on your local machine, or, if using the Cloud version, you will need an API Key to your tenant. There are tutorials on here and on Qlik's website about API Keys. You will also find having the pandas library useful, and either a Jupyter Notebook local server or use something like Google Colaboratory

You can then download and install PyToQlik using:

Installation

pip install pytoqlik 

Usage

Example 1

Creating a Qlik app and feeding it data

from pytoqlik import Pytoqlik
import seaborn

df = seaborn.load_dataset('tips')  # df is just some example data provided by the seaborn library

p2q = Pytoqlik()
app = p2q.toQlik(df)

Example 2

Importing data from a Qlik object to Python

from pytoqlik import Pytoqlik
import seaborn

df = seaborn.load_dataset('tips')  # df is just some example data provided by the seaborn library

p2q = Pytoqlik()
app = p2q.toQlik(df)
app.toPy('your ObjectID')
