A Datafile is an Octue type that corresponds to a file, which may exist on your computer or in a cloud store. It has the following main attributes:

  • path - the path of this file, which may include folders or subfolders, within the dataset.
  • cluster - the integer cluster of files, within a dataset, to which this belongs (default 0)
  • sequence - a sequence number of this file within its cluster (if sequences are appropriate)
  • tags - a space-separated string or iterable of tags relevant to this file
  • posix_timestamp - a posix timestamp associated with the file, in seconds since epoch, typically when it was created but could relate to a relevant time point for the data
