Python Client built against the Wolfram|Alpha v2.0 API. This project is hosted on bitbucket.


This library is released to PyPI, so the easiest way to install it is to use easy_install:

easy_install wolframalpha

or pip:

pip install wolframalpha

If you don't have these tools or you prefer not to use setuptools, you may also simply extract the 'wolframalpha' directory an appropriate location in your Python path.


Basic usage is pretty simple. Create the client with your App ID (request from Wolfram Alpha):

import wolframalpha
client = wolframalpha.Client(app_id)

Then, you can send queries, which return Result objects:

res = client.query('temperature in Washington, DC on October 3, 2012')

Result objects have pods attribute (a Pod is an answer from Wolfram Alpha):

for pod in res.pods:

You may also query for simply the pods which have 'Result' titles:

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
