PlaidCloud uses standard JSON-RPC requests and can be used with any application that can perform those requests.
To make things easier, a Python package is available to simplify the connection and API running process.
From a terminal run the following command:
pip install plaidcloud-rpc
Using the SimpleRPC Object to Make a Request
To make a request using the
plaidcloud-rpc package use the
from plaidcloud.rpc.connection.jsonrpc import SimpleRPC auth_token = "Your PlaidCloud Auth Token" # See Obtaining Token below endpoint_uri = "plaidcloud.com" # or plaidcloud.net rpc = SimpleRPC(auth_token, endpoint_uri)
Once you have the
SimpleRPC object instantiated you can then issue RPC request to PlaidCloud. This example requests the meta data for a table.
table = rpc.analyze.table.table( project_id=project_id, table_id=table_id )
What APIs are Available?
There are many APIs available for use that control nearly every aspect of PlaidCloud. All of the APIs, the inputs, and expected outputs are documented in the APIs documentation.
Obtaining an OAuth Token
See OAuth Tokens for more information on obtaining an OAuth token and how to configure the system for automated auth.
