Source code for script.setup

"""Setup and initialization functions

Function can be used in Python scripts to setup a GRASS environment
without starting an actual GRASS session.

Usage::

    import os
    import sys
    import subprocess

    # define GRASS Database
    # add your path to grassdata (GRASS GIS database) directory
    gisdb = os.path.join(os.path.expanduser("~"), "grassdata")
    # the following path is the default path on MS Windows
    # gisdb = os.path.join(os.path.expanduser("~"), "Documents/grassdata")

    # specify (existing) Location and Mapset
    location = "nc_spm_08"
    mapset = "user1"

    # path to the GRASS GIS launch script
    # we assume that the GRASS GIS start script is available and on PATH
    # query GRASS itself for its GISBASE
    # (with fixes for specific platforms)
    # needs to be edited by the user
    grass7bin = 'grass75'
    if sys.platform.startswith('win'):
        # MS Windows
        grass7bin = r'C:\OSGeo4W\bin\grass75.bat'
        # uncomment when using standalone WinGRASS installer
        # grass7bin = r'C:\Program Files (x86)\GRASS GIS 7.2.0\grass75.bat'
        # this can be avoided if GRASS executable is added to PATH
    elif sys.platform == 'darwin':
        # Mac OS X
        # TODO: this have to be checked, maybe unix way is good enough
        grass7bin = '/Applications/GRASS/GRASS-7.2.app/'

    # query GRASS GIS itself for its GISBASE
    startcmd = [grass7bin, '--config', 'path']
    try:
        p = subprocess.Popen(startcmd, shell=False,
                             stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE)
        out, err = p.communicate()
    except OSError as error:
        sys.exit("ERROR: Cannot find GRASS GIS start script"
                 " {cmd}: {error}".format(cmd=startcmd[0], error=error))
    if p.returncode != 0:
        sys.exit("ERROR: Issues running GRASS GIS start script"
                 " {cmd}: {error}"
                 .format(cmd=' '.join(startcmd), error=err))
    gisbase = out.strip(os.linesep)

    # set GISBASE environment variable
    os.environ['GISBASE'] = gisbase

    # define GRASS-Python environment
    grass_pydir = os.path.join(gisbase, "etc", "python")
    sys.path.append(grass_pydir)

    # import (some) GRASS Python bindings
    import grass.script as gscript
    import grass.script.setup as gsetup

    # launch session
    rcfile = gsetup.init(gisbase, gisdb, location, mapset)

    # example calls
    gscript.message('Current GRASS GIS 7 environment:')
    print gscript.gisenv()

    gscript.message('Available raster maps:')
    for rast in gscript.list_strings(type='raster'):
        print rast

    gscript.message('Available vector maps:')
    for vect in gscript.list_strings(type='vector'):
        print vect

    # delete the rcfile
    os.remove(rcfile)
