Project description


Library for accessing RedCap API from Python


Install the package with pip directly with:

pip install redcapy

Implemented functionalities

Get data from API

By now the implemented functionalities are for obtaining data from the REDCAP server, no API calls related with saving new data data or deleting data has been implemented. Available API calls are:

import redcapy
import datetime
redcap_handler = redcapy.request.APIHandler(api_url=api_url, token=token)
metadata = redcap_handler.get_metadata()
redcap_version = redcap_handler.get_redcap_version()
users = redcap_handler.get_users()
arms = redcap_handler.get_arms()
events = redcap_handler.get_events()
field_names = redcap_handler.get_field_names()
file = redcap_handler.get_file(record=1)
form_event_mapping = redcap_handler.get_form_event_mapping()
instruments_pdf = redcap_handler.get_instruments_pdf(output_file="./instruments.pdf")
instruments = redcap_handler.get_instruments()
project = redcap_handler.get_project_info()
report = redcap_handler.get_reports(1)
participant_list = redcap_handler.get_participant_list(instrument=instruments[-1]['instrument_name'])
records = redcap_handler.get_records()
date_range_begin = datetime.datetime.strptime("2019-10-10", "%Y-%m-%d")
date_range_end = datetime.datetime.strptime("2019-12-10", "%Y-%m-%d")
records = redcap_handler.get_records(date_range_begin=date_range_begin, date_range_end=date_range_end)
