Welcome to the Encord Python SDK reference!#
To use the Encord Python SDK, you first need to have a way to authenticate the client. If you haven’t logged in to the platform and added a public-private key pair, please do so before using the Encord SDK.
Before you start#
Please take a note of the following naming convention.
When we include
"<some_name>", both in code examples and in text, we mean a string with a specific value which is defined by the context without the “<” and the “>”.
"<project_hash>" would be the unique uid defining your project.
In our examples, we will write:
project_hash = "<project_hash>"
In your code, you will write::
project_hash = "00000000-1111-2222-3333-eeeeeeeeeeee"
In our docs, it should always be clear where to find such values and what the format should be.
Here are some resources to get you started with the Encord SDK:
The tutorials are separated into those that relate to datasets and those that relate to projects.
In the End-to-End examples, you find complete python files will all the code necessary to achieve an end-to-end task like getting a project ready for labelling.
