DFoundationsAnalysis

class viktor.external.dfoundations.DFoundationsAnalysis(input_file)

Bases: viktor.external.external_program.ExternalProgram

DFoundationsAnalysis can be used to perform an analysis using DFoundations on a third-party worker. To start an analysis call the method execute(), with an appropriate timeout (in seconds). To retrieve the results call the method get_output_file(), after execute().

Note: the input for the BytesIO object should be of type bytes. You can convert a string to bytes by calling the method encode(). Default encoding is ‘utf-8’.

Usage:

input_file = BytesIO("dfoundations input file body".encode('utf-8'))
dfoundations_analysis = DFoundationsAnalysis(input_file=input_file)
dfoundations_analysis.execute(timeout=10)
output_file = dfoundations_analysis.get_output_file()

Exceptions which can be raised during calculation: - viktor.errors.ExecutionError: generic error. Error message provides more information

Parameters

input_file (Union[BytesIO, File]) – .foi input file.

get_output_file(extension='.fod', *, as_file=False)
Method can be used to retrieve the results generated by running an external analysis. Call method

execute() first and get_output_file() afterwards.

Parameters
  • extension (str) – extension of the file you want to return; one of: ‘.fos’, ‘.fod’, ‘.error.log’, ‘.err’

  • as_file (bool) – return as BytesIO (default) or File

Return type

Union[BytesIO, File, None]

Returns

  • File, if as_file = True

  • BytesIO, if as_file = False (default)
