I’m working through Intake and trying to get a feel for when it would be useful. Is there a write-up somewhere that covers the various ways in which Intake is used in Pangeo deployments?
E.g., it seems that https://github.com/pangeo-data/intake-stac is doing something like “given an input URL to some STAC data, generate an Intake yaml spec and register it on-the-fly”. That’s a bit different from how I had imagined using Intake, but seems like a clever way to write a lightweight wrapper to load in structured data. That said, I am trying to figure out what would be the benefits of Intake here rather than just writing a lightweight I/O package.
Any pointers to docs / code / examples / thoughts / etc would be helpful!
