Install pyClowder2, which is a Python library that helps to easily communicate with Clowder - the backend service of Brown Dog which handles extractions. The advantage of using this library is that it manages all communications with Clowder and RabbitMQ (the distributed messaging bus) and the developer doesn't have to take care of such tasks. Needless to say, an extractor can also be written in native Python without the use of pyClowder2, but it could be more time consuming. Use of a Python virtual environment is highly recommended.
