There are several significant changes to PyClowder that have been discussed - would be nice to bundle them into a corresponding release update for 2.0. (essentially pyclowder 3.0)

  • Move to a client-based structure entirely with standardized support for both key and user/pass, along with other improvements. Max has a branch from Spring 2019 with many of these implemented:
  • Improve support for extractor versioning
    • Include extractor version in attached metadata (perhaps in agent section, also needs Clowder upgrades for this)
    • Allow registration of multiple versions of same extractor and make sure API points to correct version
  • Flags for metadata upload functions to increase flexibility
    • overwrite metadata if from same name + version of extractor
    • skip extraction of metadata from same name + extractor exists
    • optional flag to ignore version matching?
  • move simple extractor into pyclowder formally so it's easy to import
    • move sample simple extractors somewhere else?
