Welcome to the Retina Python client source code page.

  • Change Log

Introduction's Python client - a simple Python http client which simplifies the communication with the Retina server using the Retina's REST API. The source code is split into the following:

  • /cortical Endpoint files - One for each endpoint group.
  • /cortical/models - The return object classes.
  • /tests - Unit tests of all endpoints and examples of their usage.

Dependencies's Retina Python client has been tested with Python version 2.7 and with all 2.x.x versions of's api.

To use the API you will need to obtain an api key.

How to use/build

  • You will need Python (version 2.7 has been tested).
  • Install the Requests library, for example using pip install requests.
  • Clone all the sources from our Github repository.
  • Add the location of the cloned repository to your PYTHONPATH

You should now be able to use the client in the following way (obtaining a sementic representation of the term apple):

from cortical.client import ApiClient
from cortical.termsApi import TermsApi

client = ApiClient(apiKey="your_api_key", apiServer="")
api = TermsApi(client)
terms = api.getTerm("en_associative", term="apple", get_fingerprint=True)
print terms[0].fingerprint.positions

For further documentation about the Retina-API and information on's 'Retina' technology please see: Also the tests folder contains more examples of how to use the client.
