GCA-Python

Python command line client for the G-Node Conference Application Suite (GCA-Web). The GCA-Python client provides convenience functions for page administrators to download conference and abstract information for a conference hosted via a GCA-Web application.

Installation

Fetch all required scripts via git clone.

git clone https://github.com/G-Node/GCA-Python.git

Basic usage

  • Download conference information as JSON

    ./gca-client -a [HostURL] [ConfName] > conf.json

    • [HostURL] ... where the GCA-Web abstract site is hosted
    • [ConfName] ... short name of the conference used by the GCA-Web abstract site.

    e.g. conference is hosted at https://abstracts.conferences.org/neuro2019

    ./gca-client -a https://abstracts.conferences.org neuro2019 > conf.json

  • Download abstracts as JSON; the abstracts should be sorted via the web interface before they are downloaded.

    ./gca-client [HostURL] abstracts --full [ConfName] > abstracts.json

  • Download figures associated with the downloaded list of abstracts. The path where the images should be downloaded to can be specified via an optional --path flag.

    ./gca-select figures.uuid | xargs ./gca-client [HostURL] image

  • Filter abstracts to include only accepted abstracts items

    ./gca-filter [abstracts.json] "state=accepted" > [newfile.json]

  • Use the linter script to verify all abstracts are valid

    ./gca-lint [abstracts.json]

Authentication

A .netrc file with machine, login and password in the users home root is required. login has to be a GCA-Web user with appropriate conference admin privileges to access the conferences' information. e.g. content of a .netrc file:

machine abstracts.conferences.org
login username@host.com
password plainPassword
