I wanted to create an interface into the tableau sdk api without having to code each and every time in python.
I started a project at : GitHub - guzzijones/tdeBuilder: build .tde files for tableau with a .json file to configure options; odbc and csv input
The input and the tde output are described in a .json input file.
tdeBuilder.py reads in the .json config and starts the build of the .tde file.
This allows me to write a simple .json file to describe how my tde should be compiled.
Currently it works with .csv files with optional delimiter settings as well as with odbc.
I will be uploading a proper package this weekend.
I should add this is used specifically to automate creating .tde files
