sapiopylib: Official Sapio Informatics Platform Python API

PyPI Latest Release License Issues

What is it?

sapiopylib is a powerful Python package, developed and maintained by Sapio Sciences, that provides the ability to create endpoints to manipulate data and make configuration changes within the Sapio lab informatics platform in a quick and straightforward manner.

The package makes it easy to automate changes to and queries of different types of data in the system, ranging from records to notebooks and the entries within them. Intuitive datatypes, such as record models that allow for simple manipulation of data records and their fields, within the package help to make development nearly as straightforward as performing the same tasks in the application.

As well as serving as the most direct way to programmatically alter data in the application, sapiopylib makes it possible to create endpoints to alter and query configurations in the system. Configurations for system data types, lists used by the system, and more can be easily accessed using this package.

Main Features

Here is a list of major features in this library:

  • Support all Sapio REST API functions.
  • Manipulate data records with record models using client-based caching. This allows you to batch requests easily for performance. Making your changes in mini-batch is also provides transactional commits outside of a webhook context for data record changes.
  • Create new temporary data types easily with FormBuilder utility.
  • Provides Protocol-Step API as we have defined in Sapio Java API.
  • Supports creation of a Flask-based webhook server. Implement additional toolbar buttons, rules, validation logic to customize your ELN experiment, workflows, and user interface.

Where to get it?

Installation is simple:

pip install sapiopylib

However, you may need to pay attention to the library version to ensure it is compatible with your Sapio Informatics Platform.

The correct versions for each platform can be found under the tutorial github. The github will create a branch under 'prior_releases' folder when a specific sapiopylib is made against a platform release. The installation manual inside the tutorial, with the correct branch checked out, will make a reference to the exact version you should install for that platform.

Pre-releases will reference the bleeding-edge non-GA Sapio Platform.

The latest release of sapiopylib marked with final status will reference the latest GA Sapio Platform.
