 Customization And Integration

Cerebro Python SDK allows you developing of new custom functions for the system that are not available in the standard version, also to automate interaction between Cerebro and other software, that is used in the pipeline in your studio.

SDK consists of two global parts: Client API and Server API.

Server API is used to gain access to the database. In an automatic mode it allows to create/edit database entries, for example, tasks and messages, and also it allows adding new files and links to the system.

Client API  allows adding new GUI (By Pyside), items to the main and context menus of the Navigator and Forum. With the help of Client API you can launch various scripts in response to the user actions or the system events, and thus automate routine operations and control functions, for example, checking names or types of files being uploaded to the system, etc.
