Read from a stream

A guide to loading, replaying or subscribing to data from an existing stream

This quick start will help you read data from a stream on Beneath.

Install the Beneath SDK

If you haven’t already, follow the Install the Beneath SDK quick start to install and authenticate Beneath on your local computer.

Find a stream to read from

Browse the Beneath web console and navigate to a stream you want to read from. In addition to streams in your own projects, there are several public streams you can explore.

Use the API tab on the stream page

Once you’ve found a stream, click over to the “API” tab (next to the “Data” tab). Here you will find language-specific code snippets that you can easily copy and paste into your code environment.

If you just want to get started analyzing some data, we recommend you open a Jupyter notebook and read an entire stream into a DataFrame.
