[Archivesspace_Users_Group] ArchivesSnake Needs Your Help!

Hi all,

I’m heading up a collaborative project that we’re calling ArchivesSnake. ArchivesSnake is attempting to create a Python Library of scripts for working with the ArchivesSpace API.

We’ve got a great team going, and we’re currently in the information gathering stage. If you’ve written a Python script to work with the AS API, we want to hear about it! We have a Github page: https://github.com/archivesspace-labs/ArchivesSnake, but you’ll need access to write to it.

We’re currently taking the approach of adding links to scripts in github repos, and you can use the RAC (https://github.com/archivesspace-labs/ArchivesSnake/blob/master/RAC_links.md) or U of Albany (https://github.com/archivesspace-labs/ArchivesSnake/blob/master/ualbanyExample.md) links for examples. If your code is not in Github yet, but you’re willing to share it, we’ll put it up on ArchivesSnake. If you want to add links yourself, please email me and I’ll add you as a Github collaborator. If you lack the time to add links yourself, or you’re just baffled by Github, email me links to your code, and I can put them up myself.

We’re closing the information-gathering stage on January 31st, 2018. Please contact us before then.

After we’ve gathered sufficient examples, we’ll start grouping like functions and try to find the best way to do everything. After which point we’ll start work on creating the open Python library for all your needs.

Let me know if you have any questions!
