Wolfram|Alpha 2.0 API client
Basic usage is pretty simple. Create the client with your App ID (request from Wolfram Alpha):
import wolframalpha client = wolframalpha.Client(app_id)
Then, you can send queries, which return Result objects:
res = client.query('temperature in Washington, DC on October 3, 2012')
Result objects have pods (a Pod is an answer group from Wolfram Alpha):
for pod in res.pods: do_something_with(pod)
Pod objects have subpods (a Subpod is a specific response with the plaintext reply and some additional info):
for pod in res.pods: for sub in pod.subpods: print(sub.text)
You may also query for simply the pods which have ‘Result’ titles or are marked as ‘primary’ using Result.results:
All objects returned are dictionary subclasses, so to find out which attributes Wolfram|Alpha has supplied, simply invoke .keys() on the object. Attributes formed from XML attributes can be accessed with or without their “@” prefix (added by xmltodict).
