# hbp_nrp_backend.storage_client_api.StorageClient module¶

Wrapper around the storage API

class Model(nameModel, typeModel, pathModel=None)[source]

Bases: object

This class represents the model that we have in the model DB.

class ModelType[source]

Bases: object

Enumeration for model types. Model resources are enhanced in a different structure

static getResourceType(value)[source]

returns the key of the valueToFind form the types dictionary.

types = {<ResourceType.ROBOT: 286261250>: 'robots', <ResourceType.ENVIRONMENT: 286261253>: 'environments', <ResourceType.BRAIN: 286261251>: 'brains'}
class StorageClient[source]

Bases: object

Wrapper around the storage server API. Users of this class should first call the authentication function to retrieve a token, before making the requests to the storage server

can_acess_experiment(token, context_id, experiment_id)[source]

Verifies if an authenticated user can access an experiment

Copy the resources folder located in storage/experiment into simulation folder

Parameters
• token – The token of the request

create_and_extract_zip(token, experiment, name, content)[source]

Creates and extracts a zip under an experiment.

allow the transfer of multiple files. For instance we might add a create_files(files_list) in StorageClient. Internally, the files might be zipped on the client and unzipped on the server.

create_folder(token, experiment, name)[source]

Creates a folder under an experiment. If the folder exists we reuse it

Parameters
• token – a valid token to be used for the request

• experiment – the name of the experiment

• name – the name of the folder to create

create_material_from_textures(textures)[source]

Algorithm to create a new material from the textures. For every texture we append a new default material which points to the texture.

create_or_update(token, experiment, filename, content, content_type, append=False)[source]

Creates or updates a file under an experiment

Parameters
• token – a valid token to be used for the request

• experiment – the name of the experiment

• filename – the name of the file to update/create

• content – the content of the file

• content_type – the content type of the file i.e. text/plain or application/octet-stream

• append – append to file or create new file

create_textures_paths()[source]

Generate the folder structure under assets. Looks like: relative_path/materials/scripts/custom.material relative_path/materials/textures/texture1…n

delete_file(token, experiment, filename)[source]

Deletes a file under under an experiment based on the experiment name and the filename. Needs the user token
