Base is hosted on PyPi.
Assuming any reasonable Python v3.x environment, install with
$ sudo pip install octobase
The PyPi project is named “octobase” but the package you import is just
import base print(base.VERSION)
Base has no required dependencies. That is, a clean python container should be able to install and
import base with no non-default libraries.
Currently we derive our own container images from
python:3.8-buster, though any Python >= 3.6 on most system architectures should be fine.
The following libraries, if installed, add to our functionality:
bleach– needed for
django– enables several Django-specific utils
numpy– needed for
utils.ParseTimestamp()to know the local timezone
requests– needed for
The Octoboxy Base library has two parts:
Rightdown is a replacement for Python’s standard Markdown library.
The bulk of Base is a collection of classes and functions that should be useful for many Python or Django projects.
TODO – write docs for utils
