NI FlexLogger API for Python
The niflexlogger-automation package contains an API (Application Programming Interface) and examples for using Python to automate FlexLogger.

NI created and supports this package.
niflexlogger-automation has the following requirements:

Contribution to the FlexLogger Python API
If you would like to contribute to this API, first validate your changes using the provided automated tests. The Python API package contains a number of automated tests which should be used to validate API changes before submitting a pull request. If a pull request contains new API functionality, new automated tests that exercise the new functionality should be included with the pull request.
To run the automated tests for the Python API, you must first configure FlexLogger
to load the test plugins that the test projects use. To do this, copy
%public%\Documents\National Instruments\FlexLogger\Plugins\IOPlugins, and in that
<path to git repo> with the path to the cloned repo.
After this is done, you can run the tests with tox.
