A friend to fetch your Python library's sample data files


Info: This package contains files in non-standard labels.

conda install

  • linux-64  v0.5.1
  • osx-64  v0.5.1
  • win-64  v0.5.1
To install this package with conda run one of the following:
conda install -c conda-forge pooch
conda install -c conda-forge/label/cf201901 pooch


Pooch will manage downloading your sample data files over HTTP from a server and storing them in a local directory. (1) Download a file only if it's not in the local storage. (2) Check the SHA256 hash to make sure the file is not corrupted or needs updating. (3) If the hash is different from the registry, Pooch will download a new version of the file. (4) If the hash still doesn't match, Pooch will raise an exception warning of possible data corruption.
