Overview

The main questions that are being answered here are: How to fetch data? and What to do with the data?.

There are a few different ways to fetch and analyze data data:

GraphQL API

If the desired metric is available in the API using it is the preferred way to fetch data. Detailed description and examples can be found on the SanAPI page

The API can be consumed in a few different ways:

  • Use the GraphiQL Live Explorer and explore the API with included autocmplete and nice response formatting.
  • Use the /graphql API endpoint with curl directly from your terminal.
  • Use the /graphql API endpoint and construct requests in your preferred programming language. There are examples in R, Ruby, Javascript and Elixir
  • Use the sanpy Python library that wraps the GraphQL API. It is easy to use and hides all GraphQL-related details.
