Version 0.1 (2018-08-20)

  • Fist release of Pooch. Manages downloading sample data files over HTTP from a server and storing them in a local directory. Main features:
    • Download a file only if it’s not in the local storage.
    • Check the SHA256 hash to make sure the file is not corrupted or needs updating.
    • If the hash is different from the registry, Pooch will download a new version of the file.
    • If the hash still doesn’t match, Pooch will raise an exception warning of possible data corruption.
