StreamPipes Logo with Python

StreamPipes is a self-service (Industrial) IoT toolbox to enable non-technical users to connect, analyze and explore IoT data streams.

Apache StreamPipes for Python 🐍

Apache StreamPipes meets Python! We are working highly motivated on a Python library to interact with StreamPipes. In this way, we would like to unite the power of StreamPipes to easily connect to and read from different data sources, especially in the IoT domain, and the amazing universe of data analytics libraries in Python.

💡 The current version of this Python library is still a beta version.
This means that it is still heavily under development, which may result in frequent and extensive API changes, unstable behavior, etc.

⚡️ Quickstart

As a quick example, we demonstrate how to set up and configure a StreamPipes client. In addition, we will get the available data lake measures out of StreamPipes.

from streampipes.client import StreamPipesClient
from streampipes.client.config import StreamPipesClientConfig
from streampipes.client.credential_provider import StreamPipesApiKeyCredentials

config = StreamPipesClientConfig(
    credential_provider = StreamPipesApiKeyCredentials(
        username = "",
        api_key = "DEMO-KEY",
    host_address = "localhost",
    https_disabled = True,
    port = 80

client = StreamPipesClient(client_config=config)

# get all available datat lake measures
measures = client.dataLakeMeasureApi.all()

# get amount of retrieved measures

# inspect the data lake measures as pandas dataframe


measure_name timestamp_field ... pipeline_is_running num_event_properties
0 test s0::timestamp ... False 2
[1 rows x 6 columns]

Alternatively, you can provide your credentials via environment variables. Simply define your credential provider as follows:

from streampipes.client.credential_provider import StreamPipesApiKeyCredentials

StreamPipesApiKeyCredentials.from_env(username_env="USER", api_key_env="API-KEY")

username is always the username that is used to log in into StreamPipes.
The api_key can be generated within the UI as demonstrated below:
