XNATUM is a Python client that exposes in a simple way XNAT objects and functions. The aim is to make a simple Python package to everyone to use on top of Xnatpy. This reduces the need for the user to know the details of the REST API.

python setup.py install

pip install xnatum

Useful development commands

To upload it to Pypi:

python -m twine upload dist/*


You can find some code examples on how to use this package on the examples folder.


The official documentation is avaiable at xnatum.readthedocs.org.
