Intake is a lightweight set of tools for loading and sharing data in data science projects. Intake helps you:

  • Load data from a variety of formats (see the current list of known plugins) into containers you already know, like Pandas dataframes, Python lists, NumPy arrays, and more.
  • Convert boilerplate data loading code into reusable Intake plugins
  • Describe data sets in catalog files for easy reuse and sharing between projects and with others.
  • Share catalog information (and data sets) over the network with the Intake server

Documentation is available at Read the Docs.

Development

  • Create development Python environment, ideally with
    conda
    . The requirements can be found in the recipe in the
    conda/
    directory of this repo or in the sister feedstock
  • Install using
    pip install -e .[complete]
  • Add
    pytest
    to the environment to be able to run tests
  • Create a fork on github to be able to submit PRs.
  • We respect, but do not enforce, pep8 standards; all new code should be covered by tests.
