Getting Started with Demyst Data Functions

Data Functions are Demyst hosted Python functions that have full access to the Demyst data platform. These functions are highly available and horizontally scaled. They can be used for cleaning, shaping, structuring and scoring data flowing into production use cases.

It should only take you a few minutes to get your first hosted API up and running.

Install Data Function Package

pip install --no-cache-dir --index-url https://test.pypi.org/simple/ \
  --extra-index-url https://pypi.org/simple demyst-df

Verify Its Installed

Now you can run the following command from your Terminal or Command Prompt (from here we will simply refer to it as a 'shell').

demyst-data-function --help

It should produce something like this:

Usage: demyst-data-function [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

Options:
  --help  Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  artifact
  attach_pipe
  channel
  create
  deploy
  detach_pipe
  execute
  list_pipes
  test
  watch

Fini!

Now you are ready to run through some of the capabilities of Demyst Data Functions.
