Pushdata Python client library

This library allows you to easily store and retrieve time series data using the online service


pip install pushdata-io

Getting started

You can start storing data on immediately, without even registering an account there. Just install this package and write three lines of code, like this:

import pushdata

pd = pushdata.Client(email="", tsname="MyTimeseries")
pd.send(12345)  # Stores the data point 12345, timestamped with the current date and time

After you've run the code and stored at least one data point, go to where you will be able to view your timeseries. Here is a screenshot:


import pushdata

# 1. Initialize with no authentication
# Initialize with our account email and time series name we want to use
pd = pushdata.Client(email="", tsname="mytimeseries")

# 2. ...or initialize with authentication (for account with security=on)
pd = pushdata.Client(apikey="thd8JT73LsB8jah0F4d9", tsname="mytimeseries")

# Send a data point to the time series

# Send to another time series by overriding tsname
pd.send(4711, tsname="myothertimeseries")

# Retrieve all data from the time series
response = pd.recv()

# Or from another time series
response = pd.recv(tsname="anothertimeseries")

# Retrieve data timestamped during the last week
import datetime
one_week_ago = - datetime.timedelta(days=7)
response = pd.recv(fromtime=one_week_ago)

# Retrieve data for one 24-hour period, one week ago
import datetime
one_week_ago = - datetime.timedelta(days=7)
one_week_ago_plus_24h = one_week_ago + datetime.timedelta(days=1)
response = pd.recv(fromtime=one_week_ago, totime=one_week_ago_plus_24h)

# Print time series data
# We get a Python Requests response object from recv(), which 
# includes response code, raw HTTP response body, and more.
# We use the .json() method to parse the body text as JSON
# and get a dictionary:
tsdata = response.json()
# And then we print stuff:
print("Timeseries name: " + tsdata["name"])
print("First point recorded at   : " + tsdata["first"])    # timestamp of first point in time series
print("Last point recorded at    : " + tsdata["last"])     # timestamp of last point in time series
print("Total number of points    : " + tsdata["total"])    # total number of points in timeseries
print("Number of points returned : " + tsdata["returned"]) # number of points returned in this call
print("---- Points ----")
for point in tsdata["points"]:
    print("Time=%s value=%f" % (point["time"], point["value"]))

# tsdata (the decoded JSON response from is 
# a dictionary that looks like this:
#  {
#     "name": "mytimeseries",
#     "first": "2019-02-15T07:43:31.546805Z",
#     "last": "2019-03-05T11:21:06.20951Z",
#     "total": 482,
#     "returned: 482,
#     "offset": 0,
#     "limit": 10000,
#     "points": [
#        {
#           "time": "2019-02-15T07:43:31.546805Z",
#           "value": 4711.0
#        },
#        ...
#     ]
#  }
