Overview

A Python client library for the SkyWise Platform API. For example usage, see our developer guide.

Installation

Prerequisites

pip install skywise-platform

Windows Users You will most likely need to install gevent beforehand. You can typically find the latest wheel here.

Configure App ID/Key

The easiest (and recommended) way to configure authentication to the API is by setting the following environment variables:

SKYWISE_PLATFORM_APP_ID='{YOUR_APP_ID}'
SKYWISE_PLATFORM_APP_KEY='{YOUR_APP_KEY}'

Otherwise, you'll need to set your App ID/Key explicitly in your app/script before making API calls:

from skywiseplatform import PlatformResource

PlatformResource.set_user('{YOUR_APP_ID}')
PlatformResource.set_password('{YOUR_APP_KEY}')

Try It Out

Let's test out our install by requesting the latest Product listing:

import json
from skywiseplatform import Product

products = Product.find()
for p in products:
    print p.name

Your output should look something similar to this:

skywise-1hr-dewpoint-temperature-analysis
skywise-1hr-evapotranspiration-short-analysis
skywise-1hr-evapotranspiration-short-forecast
skywise-1hr-evapotranspiration-tall-analysis
skywise-1hr-evapotranspiration-tall-forecast
