Quickstart for SDK and Command Line Interface


Install via pip:

$ pip install galileo-sdk

or if you have the code checked out locally from the Github repo:

$ pip install -e .

Writing your first script

The most convenient and secure method for authentication of your SDK session is to use our AuthSdk helper class.

# On your first time using the sdk, this will open a web browser and ask you to sign in,
# or if you are in a headless environment, it will print an activation link to visit.
from galileo_sdk import GalileoSdk, AuthSdk

myauth = AuthSdk()
access_token, refresh_token, expiry_time = myauth.initialize()
galileo = GalileoSdk(auth_token=access_token, refresh_token=refresh_token)

However, if you prefer a more explicit route, GalileoSdk takes in 4 optional parameters.

from galileo_sdk import GalileoSdk

# all parameters are optional however, the user must provide either an auth and refresh token
# OR a username and password
galileo = GalileoSdk(
    auth_token="AUTH_TOKEN", # optional, must also provide refresh token
    username="user@galileoapp.io", # optional, must also provide a password
Alternatively, you can set the environment variables instead of passing in the parameters:




GalileoSdk exposes the Jobs, Machines, Profiles, Projects, and Stations APIs

Examples of using each of the APIs:

from galileo_sdk import GalileoSdk

galileo  = GalileoSdk()
jobs     = galileo.jobs.list_jobs()
stations = galileo.stations.list_stations()
users    = galileo.profiles.list_users()
machines = galileo.lz.list_lz()
missions = galileo.missions.list_missions()

You can also write callbacks that will execute upon events. The example below is a script that allows an admin of stations to automatically accept all requests to join a station:

from galileo_sdk import GalileoSdk

galileo = GalileoSdk()

# An event of type StationAdminRequestReceivedEvent is passed in to your
# callback upon the trigger of a "on_station_admin_request_received" event.
# This allows you to know who requested to join and what station they requested to join.
def on_request_received(event: StationAdminRequestReceivedEvent):
    stationid = event["stationid"]
    userid = event["userid"]
    approve_request_to_join(stationid, [userid])


Using the Galileo Command Line Interface

The Galileo CLI is an application that utilizes the Galileo SDK to take actions in your Galileo account without the need of a Webbrowser. The executable is added to your path when you install the SDK.
