A Python Wrapper for the PLOS Article Level Metrics App API
The wrapper is based on the orcid-python wrapper by github users scholrly which can be found at https://github.com/scholrly/orcid-python.
Clone the github repository to your local machine as desired and then run
python setup.py install
python setup.py develop
if you wish to work on the code.
To use the API you will need an api key. Look for the api_key.example.py file for instructions on how to get an API key for the PLOS installation and where to put it.
Testing and Contributions
pyalm is currently tested via a small unittest suite and continuous integration via Travis-CI with tests run for Python 2.7. Feel free to fork and to issue a pull request for any contributions and improvements (including getting it to pass tests under other Python versions).
