A New Registry API for pyVO
University of Heidelberg; GAVO
The Python library for Virtual Observatory (VO) access, pyVO, has recently received a refurbished API for querying the VO Registry. The main goal of that refurbishment was to facilitate data discovery (“give me data about...”) as opposed to service discovery (“find all spectral services that...”), with a particular view to interactive usage from within jupyter notebooks. In this talk, I will briefly motivate the changes and discuss how the functions and classes are supposed to work together.
