DataSift Python Client Library

This is an unofficial Python library for Datasift.

It currently supports compiling CSDLs via the REST API and consuming an HTTP Stream via the Streaming API.

Requirements

Example

from datasift import (
  DataSiftUser,
  DataSiftDefinition,
  DataSiftStream,
  DataSiftStreamListener
)

# Fill in account credentials
DATASIFT_USERNAME = "my_username"
DATASIFT_API_KEY = "my_api_key"

# Create user
user = DataSiftUser(DATASIFT_USERNAME, DATASIFT_API_KEY)

# Create, compile CSDL
csdl = 'interaction.type == "twitter" and '\
  '(interaction.content contains "skrillex")'
definition = DataSiftDefinition(csdl, user)
definition.compile()

# Define listener
class MyListener(DataSiftStreamListener):
    def on_data(self, data):
        print data

# Create stream, listen
listener = MyListener()
stream = DataSiftStream(listener, definition, user)
stream.listen()
