We maintain the official NSoT client under a separate project called pyNSoT. PyNSoT provides a Python API client and an excellent CLI utility.
If you wish to utilize NSoT from the command-line, or follow along in the Tutorial, you’re going to need this!
Installing the client is as easy as running
pip install pynsot. Setup is a
breeze, too. If you run into any issues, please refer to the official pyNSoT
If you would like to run the demo, make sure you’ve got NSoT installed and that you have a fresh clone of the NSoT repository from GitHub.
If you don’t already have a clone, clone it and change into the
$ git clone https://github.com/dropbox/nsot $ cd nsot
Then to switch to the
demo directory and fire up the demo:
$ cd nsot/demo $ ./run_demo.sh
The demo will be available at http://localhost:8990/
