A schema is a recursive structure which defines the layout of an object. It defines what elements the object consists of, which must be either

  • Atomic type (with optional metadata, e.g. value range, unit, etc.) OR

  • Composite contents (a list of schemas describing the sub-object)

In addition, it defines HOW MANY of these scalar or composite elements exist, in the form of up to six-dimensions which can each be described separately and be of fixed or variable lengths. The default size of dimensions is 1, describing a scalar value.

Schemas are used for

  • Defining the layout of Objects (as reported by e.g. “MyObject.schema”)

  • In the case of Tables: defining the common layout of all table rows (as reported by e.g “MyTableObject.schema.values[“rows”])

In the case where a schema defines a “top-level” object, it will always have a ‘values’ attribute (since it is always a composite object, and does not comprise only a single atomic value).

is_empty() bool#
to_minimal_dict(include_all: bool) dict[str, Any]#

Add a minimal representation of this object to a dictionary for subsequent serialization to JSON

add_sub_schema(name: str, schema: tlc.core.schema.Schema) None#

Adds a Schema as a sub-property within this Schema (i.e. into the ‘values’ collection)

add_sub_value(name: str, value: tlc.core.schema.ScalarValue, writable: bool = True, computable: bool = True) None#

Adds a scalar value as a sub-property within this Schema (i.e. into the ‘values’ collection)

to_json() str#

Writes the contents of this schema to a JSON string. Note that

  • Defaults values are omitted for brevity

  • Schemas might be recursive

static from_any(any_object: Any) tlc.core.schema.Schema#

Returns a Schema object which has been populated from a serialized (possibly sparse) object

static from_json(json_string: str) tlc.core.schema.Schema#

Returns a Schema object which has been populated from a JSON string

consider_override_from(override_schema: tlc.core.schema.Schema | Mapping[str, object] | None) tlc.core.schema.Schema#

Selectively overwrites columns within this Schema according to the columns defined in another Schema.

does_object_match(_object: Any) bool#

Checks whether a schema matches an example object.

This requires exact 1:1 mapping between attributes in the object and the schema (including recursively). This means no attributes can be missing, nor can there be any additional attributes only present in the object.

is_fixed_size() bool#
is_scalar() bool#
is_atomic() bool#

Return whether the schema is atomic, i.e. has a single value.

The opposite of is_composite.

Returns:

Whether the schema is atomic

is_composite() bool#

Return whether the schema is composite, i.e. has multiple values.

The opposite of is_atomic.

Returns:

Whether the schema is composite

property sample_type_object: tlc.client.sample_type.SampleType#
row_from_sample(sample: Any) dict[str, Any]#
sample_from_row(row: Mapping[str, object]) Any#
classmethod from_structure(structure: tlc.client.sample_type._SampleTypeStructure) tlc.core.schema.Schema#

Creates a schema from a structure.

Parameters:

structure – The structure to create a schema from

Returns:

The schema

classmethod from_sample(sample: Any) tlc.core.schema.Schema#

Creates a schema describing the provided sample.

Parameters:

sample – The sample to create a schema from

Returns:

The schema

push_dim(dim: tlc.core.schema.DimensionNumericValue | None = None) tlc.core.schema.DimensionNumericValue | None#

Inserts dim as size0 and shifts all other dimensions right. (size1 becomes size0, size2 becomes size1).

Parameters:

dim – The dimension to insert as size0

Returns:

The old size5

pop_dim() tlc.core.schema.DimensionNumericValue | None#

Sets size5 to None and shifts all other dimensions left. (size5 becomes size4, size4 becomes size3, etc.).

Returns:

The old size0

add_sample_weight(hidden: bool = True) None#

Adds a sample weight column to the schema.

Parameters:

hidden – Whether the column should be hidden

class tlc.core.schema.NoneSchema#

Bases: tlc.core.schema.Schema

A schema that encodes a None value

It is not a valid Schema as it has neither value nor values. It is used to encode override schemas that remove sub schemas.

Example:

override_schema = { "values": { "column_to_remove": None }}
# or equivalently
override_schema = { "values": { "column_to_remove": NoneSchema()}}
to_json() str#
