[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Python ArchivesSpace scripting library

One thing I think might be useful, especially in planning stages, is collecting the “prior art” in one place to look at – because there are a lot of scripts people have built around the API, and they probably capture at least a fair bit of “what people want to do most with the API.”

So, whenever the github is set up, we should do this.

Hello Patrick,

I have written some tools in go and mocked up functionaity in Python a few years ago I'd be interested in the project.

Hi all,

For a while now the RAC has been bouncing around the idea of developing an AS Python library that would hold a lot of the functions we find ourselves working with a lot when scripting against the AS API. I know Greg Wiedeman at U Albany has done some work to this end, but I wanted to send a blast out to the list to see who else might be interested. We’d love to make this as collaborative and exhaustive as possible so that we can cover the most bases.

I’m thinking of setting up a Github project that we can collaboratively work in. Anyone have better ideas?

Let me know.
