Getting Started

To get you started we provided a few cookbook examples:

Data Manipulation

In this script, we demonstrate creating, modifying and removing content.

Flow Example

Learn how to create a SLimsgate flow with python. In the given example you will create a very simple two steps flow. In the first step a content record can be selected in the UI. In the second step a new id for that content record can be chosen.

Live Report

This web application is displaying on a web page a live report for a selected period. It shows how a webportal can be used to create a specific report directly through the api.

Order Submission

In this sample web application, a user can create an order direclty through a web portal, with customizable appearance and formatting


In this example, we demonstrate how graphical plots can be created with python while fetching the data through the api.
