Thanks to a fix contributed by a power-user, the essbasepy library (Python MaxL wrapper for Essbase) has been enhanced slightly to include a fix for previous versions of Essbase. There were cases when the library would work out of the box for 18.104.22.168 but some functions didn’t work as expected with earlier versions due to the way a data structure was changed.
A huge number of updates and cleanups were put in to the Essbase Python wrapper (essbasepy) recently. These were all made by Github user Kevin (‘nurse’) who updated many sections of code, modernized a number of things, cleaned up comments, and more. The updates look substantial and if you are using Python 3 with this module, absolutely recommended. Check out the GitHub Essbasepy page for more.
Many, many thanks to Github user nurzen who made some fixes to Essbasepy that fix up an issue with some 64-bit systems. I haven’t had a chance to work extensively on this package lately. Essbasepy is a Python library that was created by David Welden and is analogous to the MaxL Perl module. It allows for working with MaxL and Python.
