  • Download ROAR runs and trials

  • List ROAR Firestore collections



You can install Roarquery via pip from PyPI:

pip install roarquery

Roarquery also requires you to install fuego, a command line firestore client. Please see the fuego documentation for complete installation instructions.

On a Mac, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure you have a working go installation. If

go version

returns something, then you are good to go. If not, install go with homebrew:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"
brew install go
  1. Then install fuego

git clone
cd fuego
go build .
go install .
  1. Finally, modify your PATH variable to include the go installation directory, which can be done with the following incantation:

echo $HOME/go/bin | sudo tee -a /private/etc/paths.d/go
  1. You may need to open a new terminal window or tab for these changes to take effect.



Before you can use Roarquery, you need to provide authentication details:

Roarquery works with both the current and legacy ROAR assessment databases. For example, the roarquery runs subcommand accepts a –legacy parameter to access the legacy database. If you would like to use roarquery with both databases, you will need to follow the steps below in both the legacy and current assessment Firebase projects.

  1. Retrieve or generate a Service Account key file.

    1. go to your Firebase project console,

    2. go to “Project settings” (in the little gear menu next to “Project Overview”),

    3. click on the “Service accounts” tab,

    4. click on the “Generate new private key” button.

  2. Save these files to somewhere on your computer. For example, presuming the previous commands downloaded the files to “$HOME/Downloads/private_key.json” and “$HOME/Downloads/legacy_private_key.json”

    mkdir -p "$HOME/.firebaseconfig"
    mv "$HOME/Downloads/private_key.json" "$HOME/.firebaseconfig/private_key.json"
    mv "$HOME/Downloads/legacy_private_key.json" "$HOME/.firebaseconfig/legacy_private_key.json"
  3. Set the environment variable ROAR_QUERY_CREDENTIALS (or ROAR_QUERY_LEGACY_CREDENTIALS for the legacy database) to point to these files.

    echo "export ROAR_QUERY_CREDENTIALS=\"$HOME/.firebaseconfig/private_key.json\"" >> ~/.zprofile
    echo "export ROAR_QUERY_CREDENTIALS=\"$HOME/.firebaseconfig/private_key.json\"" >> ~/.bash_profile
    echo "export ROAR_QUERY_LEGACY_CREDENTIALS=\"$HOME/.firebaseconfig/legacy_private_key.json\"" >> ~/.zprofile
    echo "export ROAR_QUERY_LEGACY_CREDENTIALS=\"$HOME/.firebaseconfig/legacy_private_key.json\"" >> ~/.bash_profile
