odmltools is a package collecting convenience scripts for the odML python-project. The Python odML library is available on GitHub.
The open metadata Markup Language is a file based format (XML, JSON, YAML) for storing metadata in an organised human- and machine-readable way. odML is an initiative to define and establish an open, flexible, and easy-to-use format to transport metadata.
Currently the package contains a convenience script to import DataCite XML files to odML:
The script is automatically installed and available via the command line. It provides
detailed usage descriptions by adding the
help flag to the command.
