An XNAT client that exposes the XNAT REST interface as python objects. Part of the interface is automatically generated based on the servers data model as defined by the xnat schema.
A new XNAT client that exposes XNAT objects/functions as python objects/functions.
This is NOT pyxnat, but a new module which is not as mature but uses a different philisophy for the user interface. Pyxnat is located at: https://pythonhosted.org/pyxnat/
To install just use the setup.py normally:
python setup.py install
or install directly using pip:
pip install xnat
To get started, create a connection and start querying:
>>> import xnat >>> session = xnat.connect('https://central.xnat.org', user="", password="") >>> session.projects['Sample_DICOM'].subjects
when using IPython most functionality can be figured out by looking at the available attributes/methods of the returned objects.
To store credentials this module uses the .netrc file. This file contains login information and should be accessible ONLY by the user (if not, the module with throw an error to let you know the file is unsafe).
The official documentation can be found at xnat.readthedocs.org This documentation is a stub, but shows the classes and methods available.
Currently we do not support the creation of Projects, Subjects, Experiments, etc via code. You can create resources and uploads files to them. Also it is possible to import data via the import service (upload a zip file). There is also some support for working with the prearchive (reading, moving, deleting and archiving).
There is virtuall no documentation or testing, this is a known limitation.
