DSP-TOOLS is a Python package with a command line interface that helps you interact with a DSP server. A DSP server is a remote server or a local machine where the DSP-API is running on.
To install the latest version, run:
pip3 install dsp-tools
To update to the latest version run:
pip3 install --upgrade dsp-tools
The two main tasks that DSP-TOOLS serves for are:
- Create a project with its data model(s), described in a JSON file, on a DSP server
In order to archive your data on the DaSCH Service Platform, you need a data model that describes your data. The data model is defined in a JSON project definition file which has to be transmitted to the DSP server. If the DSP server is aware of the data model for your project, conforming data can be uploaded into the DSP repository.
- Upload data, described in an XML file, to a DSP server that has a project with a matching data model
Sometimes, data is added in large quantities. Therefore, DSP-TOOLS allows you to perform bulk imports of your data. In order to do so, the data has to be described in an XML file. DSP-TOOLS is able to read the XML file and upload all data to the DSP server.
All functionalities of DSP-TOOLS revolve around these two basic tasks.
DSP-TOOLS provides the following functionalities:
dsp-tools createcreates the project with its data model(s) on a DSP server from a JSON file.
dsp-tools getreads a project with its data model(s) from a DSP server and writes it into a JSON file.
dsp-tools xmluploaduploads data from an XML file (bulk data import) and writes the mapping from internal IDs to IRIs into a local file.
dsp-tools excel2jsoncreates an entire JSON project file from a folder with Excel files in it.
dsp-tools excel2listscreates the "lists" section of a JSON project file from one or several Excel files. The resulting section can be integrated into a JSON project file and then be uploaded to a DSP server with
dsp-tools excel2resourcescreates the "resources" section of a JSON project file from an Excel file. The resulting section can be integrated into a JSON project file and then be uploaded to a DSP server with
dsp-tools excel2propertiescreates the "properties" section of a JSON project file from an Excel file. The resulting section can be integrated into a JSON project file and then be uploaded to a DSP server with
dsp-tools excel2xmltransforms a data source to XML if it is already structured according to the DSP specifications.
- The module
excel2xmlprovides helper methods that can be used in a Python script to convert data from a tabular format into XML.
dsp-tools id2iritakes an XML file for bulk data import and replaces referenced internal IDs with IRIs. The mapping has to be provided with a JSON file.
dsp-tools start-stack / stop-stackassist you in running a DSP stack on your local machine.
dsp-tools templatecreates a template repository with a minimal JSON and XML file.
dsp-tools rosettaclones the most up to data rosetta repository, creates the data model and uploads the data.
