    import rechtspraak_extractor as rex
    # For rechtspraak
    # To get the rechtspraak data in a dataframe:
    df = rex.get_rechtspraak(max_ecli=100, sd='2022-08-01', save_file='n')  # Gets 100 ECLIs from 1st August 2022
    # To save rechtspraak data as a CSV file:
    rex.get_rechtspraak(max_ecli=100, sd='2022-08-01', save_file='y') 
    # For rechtspraak metadata
    # To get metadata as a dataframe from rechtspraak data (as a dataframe):
    df_metadata = rex.get_rechtspraak_metadata(save_file='n', dataframe=df)
    # To get metadata as a dataframe from rechtspraak file (as a dataframe):
    df_metadata = rex.get_rechtspraak_metadata(save_file='n', filename='rechtspraak.csv')
    # To get metadata as a dataframe from rechtspraak data (saved as CSV file):
    rex.get_rechtspraak_metadata(save_file='y', dataframe=df)
    # To get metadata and save as a CSV file:
    rex.get_rechtspraak_metadata(save_file='y', filename='rechtspraak.csv')
    # filename='rechtspraak.csv' - filename.csv is a file from the data folder created by get_rechtspraak method
    # dataframe=df - df is a dataframe created by get_rechtspraak method
    # Will not get any metadata
    df = rex.get_rechtspraak_metadata(save_file='n')
    # Will get the metadata of all the files in the data folder
