Remote Tutorial

You can read files remotely with Frictionless. This is a basic functionality of Frictionless.

Reading Data#

You can read using Package/Resource, for example:

Python
from pprint import pprint
from frictionless import Resource
resource = Resource(path='https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frictionlessdata/frictionless-py/master/data/table.csv')
pprint(resource.read_rows())
[{'id': 1, 'name': 'english'}, {'id': 2, 'name': '中国人'}]

Writing Data#

A similar approach can be used for writing:

Python
from frictionless import Resource
resource = Resource(path='data/table.csv')
resource.write('https://example.com/data/table.csv') # will POST the file to the server

Configuring Data#

There is a Control to configure remote data, for example:

Python
from pprint import pprint
from frictionless import Resource
from frictionless.plugins.remote import RemoteControl
control = RemoteControl(http_timeout=10)
resource = Resource(path='https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frictionlessdata/frictionless-py/master/data/table.csv', control=control)
pprint(resource.read_rows())
[{'id': 1, 'name': 'english'}, {'id': 2, 'name': '中国人'}]
