Python client for airt service¤


For full documentation, Please follow the below link:

How to install¤

If you don’t have the airt library already installed, please install it using pip.

pip install airt-client

How to use¤

To access the airt service, you must first create a developer account. Please fill out the signup form below to get one:

After successful verification, you will receive an email with the username and password for the developer account.

Once you have the credentials, use them to get an access token by calling Client.get_token method. It is necessary to get an access token; otherwise, you won’t be able to access all of the airt service’s APIs. You can either pass the username, password, and server address as parameters to the Client.get_token method or store them in the environment variables AIRT_SERVICE_USERNAME, AIRT_SERVICE_PASSWORD, and AIRT_SERVER_URL

In addition to the regular authentication with credentials, you can also enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) for generating tokens.

To help protect your account, we recommend that you enable multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA provides additional security by requiring you to provide unique verification code (OTP) in addition to your regular sign-in credentials when performing critical operations.

Your account can be configured for MFA in just two easy steps:

  1. To begin, you need to enable MFA for your account by calling the User.enable_mfa method, which will generate a QR code. You can then scan the QR code with an authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator and follow the on-device instructions to finish the setup in your smartphone.

  2. Finally, activate MFA for your account by calling User.activate_mfa and passing the dynamically generated six-digit verification code from your smartphone’s authenticator app.

You can also disable MFA for your account at any time by calling the method User.disable_mfa method.

Single sign-on (SSO) can be enabled for your account in three simple steps:

  1. Enable the SSO for a provider by calling the User.enable_sso method with the SSO provider name and an email address. At the moment, we only support “google” and “github” as SSO providers. We intend to support additional SSO providers in future releases.

  2. Before you can start generating new tokens with SSO, you must first authenticate with the SSO provider. Call the Client.get_token with the same SSO provider you have enabled in the step above to generate an SSO authorization URL. Please copy and paste it into your preferred browser and complete the authentication process with the SSO provider.

  3. After successfully authenticating with the SSO provider, call the Client.set_sso_token method to generate a new token and use it automatically in all future interactions with the airt server.

  • API with reference documentation.

Here’s a minimal example showing how to use airt services to train a model and make predictions.

In the below example, the username, password, and server address are stored in AIRT_SERVICE_USERNAME, AIRT_SERVICE_PASSWORD, and AIRT_SERVER_URL environment variables.

0. Get token¤

# Importing necessary libraries
from airt.client import Client, DataBlob, DataSource

# Authenticate

1. Connect data¤

# The input data in this case is a CSV file stored in an AWS S3 bucket. Before
# you can use the data to train a model, it must be uploaded to the airt server.
# Run the following command to upload the data to the airt server for further
# processing.
data_blob = DataBlob.from_s3(uri="s3://test-airt-service/ecommerce_behavior_csv")

# Display the upload progress

# Once the upload is complete, run the following command to preprocess and
# prepare the data for training.
data_source = data_blob.to_datasource(
    file_type="csv", index_column="user_id", sort_by="event_time"

# Display the data preprocessing progress

# When the preprocessing is finished, you can run the following command to
# display the head of the data to ensure everything is fine.
