Intake Examples

This repository includes example notebooks and data packages for intake.

They should run locally if you download this repository. They are also available in a running environment on the cloud by clicking on the link below:



The subdirectory tutorial/ contains three notebooks describing work-flows for three different roles by which you might interact with Intake. The separation of concerns is important, so that each person can concentrate on the job that they have in front of them with clear communication paths between each. It may be that in a small organisation, a person fulfills multiple of these roles, but it is still useful to consider problems from each vantage in turn:

  • data scientist - for the end-user who want to find, load and analyse their data
  • data engineer - for the curator of data and catalogues, who decides how best to store and expose data
  • developer - for authors of new drivers and other extensions to Intake's capabilities. This person does not necessarily develop any code for the Intake package itself.
