Installing from PyPI

Gain access to the latest stable release of HUB-SDK through PyPI. Simply execute the command below in your terminal/shell to seamlessly add the SDK to your Python project:

pip install hub-sdk

After running this command, the SDK will be downloaded and installed, unlocking the capabilities of Ultralytics services in your application.

Initialize HUBClient

Integration with Ultralytics services starts with the initialization of an HUBClient object. This pivotal step creates a bridge between your code and our APIs, and it requires appropriate credentials for authentication. You can opt for the standard API key method or use your email and password. Let's set it up together! 🚀

Option 1: Using an API Key

To utilize the simplicity of an API key, prepare a dictionary with your key like so:

# Replace <YOUR-API-KEY> with the actual key provided to you by Ultralytics.
credentials = {"api_key": "<YOUR-API-KEY>"}

By using an API key, you're choosing a common authentication method suitable for programmatic access. It's perfect for scenarios where integrating a key directly into your framework is desired for swift and secure service interaction.

Option 2: Using Email and Password

Prefer to harness your account credentials? Configure the HUBClient with your email and password in the credentials dictionary:

# Replace <YOUR-EMAIL> with your email address and <YOUR-PASSWORD> with your password.
credentials = {"email": "<YOUR-EMAIL>", "password": "<YOUR-PASSWORD>"}

Employing your email and password is a convenient choice if you're looking for a traditional login experience or aiming to utilize personalized features tied to your Ultralytics account.

Bringing it All Together

Now that your credentials are prepared, initiate your HUBClient:

HUB SDK Authentication

from hub_sdk import HUBClient

credentials = {"api_key": "<YOUR-API-KEY>"}  # api key
client = HUBClient(credentials)
from hub_sdk import HUBClient

credentials = {"email": "<YOUR-EMAIL>", "password": "<YOUR-PASSWORD>"}  # email and password
client = HUBClient(credentials)

This crucial line of code crafts a new instance of the HUBClient, connecting you to the vast landscape of services offered by the Ultralytics platform. With your authentication details securely in place, you're all set to explore the functionalities at your fingertips!

Congratulations on setting up the Ultralytics HUB-SDK! You are now well-equipped to embark on your journey towards integrating cutting-edge machine learning services into your applications.
