Utils and common libraries for Python

Project description

Contributor Covenant


Hey! Welcome to SwissKnife, a set of tools and functionalities built by the Data Engineering team at @uDATech.

This library is born from an urge of having a common repo to gather some functions that are widely used accross our tools.

Suggestions and contributions are more than welcome, always respecting our Code of Conduct.

Installation guide

  • Complete set:

    • Includes both Basic and Extended sets

Using the modules


The main goal of this module is to identify the environment in which we are currently working. This is done thanks to an environment variable $ENV which contains the name of the working environment. The accepted case insensitive values of this working environment are:

The object, which is of type ExecutionEnvironment, an enum that contains the following entries:

  • PRO
  • PRE
  • TEST
  • DEV (default)

Then, it's possible to know the working environment using a set of methods which return a boolean indicating whether we are in that environment or not:

  • is_pro()
  • is_pre()
  • is_test()
  • is_dev()

It's also possible to obtain the working environment using object

Why is there a Dockerfile?

The one and only purpose of the Dockerfile is to execute the tests defined in the project. By building and running the Docker image, tests results will be printed in the terminal. If it's needed to save the result in a file, run:

sudo docker run swissknife:latest > nosetests.xml
