Getting Started

Authentication and authorization

Your data may be your most valued treasure and security is no laughing matter! At least we take it very seriously. Every API call requires authentication and every bit of data (pun intended) requires authorization to access.

Before you can start to use DataReservoir.io, you need to be able to authenticate. If your organization is granted access via federation, then you may use your prefered method to authenticate as it is done within your organization. For single user access, contact us and we will hook you up.

For non-interactive applications (daemons), you would need a set of client_id and client_secret. Contact us and we will help you.

How to install

datareservoirio is written in pure Python and supports Windows, Linux, and MacOS. Python >=3.6 is officially supported (but it may work just fine with older versions... but not Python 2!)

To install from PyPI:

pip install datareservoirio

And to upgrade to the latest version:

pip install --upgrade datareservoirio
