Installation and Setup

Once you have signed up for an account, you may set the SIGOPT_API_TOKEN environment variable. You can find your tokens on the API Tokens page.
Python
Bash
Java
R
MATLAB

Install the Python Client

$ pip install sigopt
Alternatively, you can manually set the API token in Python.
from sigopt import Connection
conn = Connection(client_token="USER_TOKEN")
If you are a Bash user, you do not need to install any client. You can verify that you have access to SigOpt with the following command.
curl -X GET -u "$SIGOPT_API_TOKEN:" "https://api.sigopt.com/v1/tokens/self"
You should be able to see a JSON response similar to the following
{
"all_experiments": true,
"client": "1",
"development": false,
"experiment": null,
"expires": null,
"lease_length": null,
"object": "token",
"organization": "1",
"permissions": "write",
"scope": "all_endpoints",
"token": "SIGOPT_API_TOKEN",
"token_type": "client-api",
"training_run": null,
"user": "12345"
}
You can use our official Java API client to call API endpoints.
The SigOpt java library is available from Maven. Follow the installation instructions on GitHub.
Pass your API token directly, overriding any environment variables
import com.sigopt.Sigopt;
Sigopt.clientToken = "USER_TOKEN";
You can install the SigOptR package directly from CRAN, or you can use the devtools package to grab the latest version from GitHub.

CRAN

Install the SigOptR package directly from CRAN:
install.packages("SigOptR", repos = "http://cran.us.r-project.org")
library(SigOptR)

Latest Version from GitHub

Install the latest SigOptR package from GitHub by using devtools:
install.packages("devtools", repos = "http://cran.us.r-project.org")
library(devtools)
install_github("sigopt/SigOptR")
library(SigOptR)
You can use our SigOpt Toolbox to call API endpoints.
The SigOpt MATLAB library is a custom toolbox by SigOpt. Follow the installation instructions on GitHub.

Proxies

If you are connecting to SigOpt behind a proxy, you may need to configure your client appropriately.
Python
Bash
Java
from sigopt import Connection
conn = Connection(client_token="USER_TOKEN")
conn.set_proxies({
'http': 'http://10.10.1.10:3128',
'https': 'http://user:[email protected]:1080',
})
See the documentation for the requests module for more information.
export http_proxy='http://10.10.1.10:3128'
export https_proxy='http://user:[email protected]:1080'
import com.sigopt.Sigopt;
Sigopt.setConnectionProxy(host, port);
Sigopt.setProxyCredential(new java.net.PasswordAuthentication(username, password));
