Example Data Feed Code

Following are fully functional examples, in Python3, for using the Aria Data Feed web service. You can download a .zip file comprising all 5 of these Python3 scripts here: 20200624sample_datastreaming_python.zip

    Authenticator that retrieves access token from Aria auth service.
    There does not appear to be an off-the-shelf lib that does this at this time, a value that can be assigned
    to an http request's "auth" parameter that retrieves the access token using an Oauth2 grant type request.

class StreamStatusStore(object):
    A dummy store for a stream's last event id.

    The purpose of this is to save the stream's last event id so that in the event that this app crashes,
    the app knows where to restart.  A real implementation should periodically write the value to some kind of
    persistent store, such as a file system, memcache or database.  On restart the implementation should reread
    the value.
