Welcome to Gazu’s documentation!
Gazu is a Python client for the Kitsu API. It allows you to fetch your production data easily. More than giving access to data, it allows performing operations, like marking a task as started or setting a thumbnail on a shot.
NB: It requires an up-and-running instance of the Kitsu API to run appropriately.
Who is it for?
The audience for this Python client is Technical Artists, Technical Directors, and Software Engineers from animation/VFX studios. With Gazu, they can augment their tools with the production data.
Install Gazu in your application environment via pip:
pip install gazu
The client requires a few extra configurations before being used. It needs to know where is located the API server and to log in:
Let’s finish with an example. Fetch all the open projects:
projects = gazu.project.all_open_projects()
Here is a non-exhaustive list of use cases that allow Gazu:
Ensure that every artist’s workstations are on the same page when dealing with the file system.
Build a to-do list for artists of the project.
Get working file paths and output file paths for a given task.
Get the next available working revision for a given task.
Manage automatic validation changes.
The source is available on Github.
