nsfsearch: NSF Awards API Simple CLI

This is an application based on the NSF Awards API. While the NSF award search tool is great, this is useful to get some quick reports and statistics on NSF awards. It also does act as a quick search and ideally as NSF updates the API this tool will be updated to reflect changes.

Installation

This assumes that you have native python & pip installed in your system, you can test this by going to the terminal (or windows command prompt) and trying

python and then pip list

To install nsfsearch: Simple CLI for Google Home & Mini you can install using two methods.

pip install nsfsearch

or you can also try

git clone https://github.com/samapriya/nsfsearch.git
cd nsfsearch
python setup.py install

For Linux use sudo or try pip install nsfsearch --user.

Installation is an optional step; the application can also be run directly by executing nsfsearch.py script. The advantage of having it installed is that nsfsearch can be executed as any command line tool. I recommend installation within a virtual environment. If you don't want to install, browse into the nsfsearch folder and try python nsfsearch.py to get to the same result.

Getting started

As usual, to print help:

To obtain help for specific functionality, simply call it with help switch, e.g.: nsfsearch result -h. If you didn't install nsfsearch, then you can run it just by going to nsfsearch directory and running python nsfsearch.py [arguments go here]

nsfsearch NSF Awards API Simple CLI

The tool is based on curret NSF award search API and is subject to change in the future.
