Adapter Python IO (Adapter) v1.0. Computer Software
Adapter Python IO software provides a convenient data table loader from various formats such as
db (sqlite database), and
sqlalchemy. Its main feature is the ability to convert data tables identified in one main and optionally one or more additional input files into
database tables and
Pandas DataFrames for downstream usage in any compatible software.
Adapter builds upon the existing Python packages that allow for the communication between
MS Excel, as well as
csv files. It provides inbuilt capabilities to specify the output location path, as well as a version identifier for a research code run.
In addition to the loading capability, an instance of the
IO object has the write capability. If invoked, all loaded tables are written as either a single
database or a set of
csv files, or both.
The purpose of this software is to support the development of research and analytical software through allowing for a simple multi-format IO with versioning and output path specification in the input data itself.
The package is supported on
macOS, as well as for
Linux for the utilization without any
