Dynect REST API wrapper

Project description

This is a simple Python wrapper for interacting with the Dynect Managed DNS

As it makes use of a JSON interface, one must either have the simplejson
module installed, or have Python 2.6/2.7 which have a JSON library that comes
with the language. Python 3.x is not currently specifically supported.

Use is fairly simple:

import sys
from dynect.DynectDNS import DynectRest

rest_iface = DynectRest()

# Log in
arguments = {
'customer_name': 'my_cust',
'user_name': 'my_user',
'password': 'my_pass',
response = rest_iface.execute('/Session/', 'POST', arguments)

if response['status'] != 'success':
sys.exit("Incorrect credentials")

# Perform action
response = rest_iface.execute('/Zone/', 'GET')
zone_resources = response['data']

# Log out, to be polite
rest_iface.execute('/Session/', 'DELETE')

Documentation on the REST resources can be found at
