Typo is the intelligent data quality barrier for enterprise information systems. The Typo tap retrieves results and data from the Typo platform.

# tap-typo

Singer tap that extracts data from the Typo platform. The tap produces JSON-formatted data output following the Singer spec.

## Usage

This section describes the basic usage of tap-typo through an example data extraction from a Typo dataset. It assumes that you already have a Typo account, with an existing repository and a dataset. If you do not meet these prerequisites, please go to Typo Registration and Setup.

### Installation

Python 3 is required. It is recommended to create a separate virtual environment for each tap or target as their may be incompatibilities between dependency versions.

> pip install tap-typo


### Create a configuration file

The config file (usually config.json) is a JSON file describing the tap's settings.

The following sample configuration can be used as a starting point:

{
"api_key": "my_apikey",
"api_secret": "my_apisecret",
"cluster_api_endpoint": "https://cluster.typo.ai/management/api/v1",
"repository": "my_repository",
"dataset": "my_dataset",
"audit_id": "audit_id",
"output_rfc3339_datetime": false
}


Please note: the dataset and audit_id parameters are optional. When not specified the tap-typo will automatically run in sync mode using the selected datasets from the catalog.

• api_key, api_secret and cluster_api_endpoint can be obtained by logging into the Typo Console, clicking on your username, and then on My Account.
• repository and dataset correspond to their respective names and audit_id is optional and should be only provided when syncing data from an audit.
• Additionally, a records_per_page parameter can be provided to override the number of records requested at once, and a record_limit parameter can indicate the maximum number of records that will be obtained when the tap is executed.

### Discovery mode

In discovery mode, tap-typo will infer the Singer Catalog from the config file and data in Typo. The output can be redirected to a file in order to be modified and used as input to tap-typo (see Catalog file section).

> tap-typo -c config.json -d > catalog.json


### Sync mode

Sync mode will fetch data from Typo and output to stdout. Each record has two additional fields: __typo_result, that can have a value of Error or OK and __typo_record_id, which indicates the record's internal ID in Typo. Before starting the sync, unless a custom Catalog file is provided, Typo will run discovery and build the catalog.

> tap-typo -c config.json


### Saving state and resuming

#### Saving state messages

When tap-typo runs in Sync mode it will emit one STATE message for every RECORD message emitted. STATE messages contain a value JSON property with the state information.

A Singer target should output the contents of the value JSON property in a STATE message. By redirecting this target output to a file, the value property of each STATE message will be stored per line.

> tap-typo -c config.json | target-google-bigquery > state-history.txt


#### Creating a State file

To resume from a failed or terminated transfer, you will need create a STATE file from the last line in the redirected output (state-history.txt in our example). Below is an example command that performs the step to create a STATE file, state.json, from state-history.txt. You may edit this STATE file as necessary. The STATE file can be used as input to tap-typo to resume.

tail -n 1 state-history.txt > state.json


Example STATE file:

{
"bookmarks": {
"tap-typo-repository-repo1-dataset-dataset1": {
"__typo_record_id": 26
}
}
}


#### Resuming with a State file

To resume by providing a State file, tap-typo can be started with a -s parameter and providing a path to a STATE file. tap-typo searches the bookmarks property for a key that matches the stream name. If found, tap-typo will try to resume from the location defined in the bookmark.

> tap-typo -c config.json -s state.json | target-google-bigquery > state-history.txt


### Catalog file

A catalog file can be provided by adding the --catalog parameter with a file path. This will prevent the discovery process and use the catalog provided in the file path.

> tap-typo -c config.json --catalog catalog.json | target-google-bigquery > state-history.txt


## Typo registration and setup

In order to create a Typo account, visit https://www.typo.ai/signup and follow the instructions.

Once registered you can log in to the Typo Console (https://console.typo.ai/) and go to the Repositories section to create a new Repository.

Next, you can start uploading data by using target-typo. A new dataset will be created automatically when data is submitted.

## Development

To work on development of tap-typo, clone the repository, create and activate a new virtual environment, go into the cloned folder and install tap-typo in editable mode.

git clone https://github.com/typo-ai/tap-typo.git
cd tap-typo
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip install -e .
