Project Description

renuntius is a RESTful webservice for sending messages.


This application was tested, using the following versions:

  • python==2.7
  • flask==0.9
  • flask-restless==0.9.3
  • flask-sqlalchemy==0.16

Installation with pip

Using pip is probably the easiest way to install renuntius:

pip install renuntius

Local application

In order to run the application, write the following python-code (e.g.:

from renuntius.messaging import flask, db, app, Message


manager = flask.ext.restless.APIManager(app, flask_sqlalchemy_db=db)
manager.create_api(Message, methods=['GET', 'POST']), port=5001)

Note: Within the application folder you need a, like:

# Database
SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'sqlite:////tmp/renuntius.sqlite'

# E-Mail-Server

# Messages
SERVICE_PREAMBLE = u"This message was automatically generated."
FROM_DEFAULT = u'"IT-Renuntius" <renuntius@DOMAIN.ORG>'

Please adjust this to your own settings.



Special use case: PostgreSQL

In order to be able to use a postgresql server, you need to install psycopg2. To install psycopg2 within a virtualenv under linux, do the following:

sudo aptitude install libpq-dev python-dev
pip install psycopg2

Example for postgresql (you probably want to specify the SCHEMA!):

# Database
SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'postgresql://_ren_admin@ama-prod/mucam'
SCHEMA = 'renuntius'

# E-Mail-Server

# Messages
SERVICE_PREAMBLE = u"This message was automatically generated."
FROM_DEFAULT = u'"IT-Renuntius" <renuntius@DOMAIN.ORG>'


Sending an E-Mail via renuntius:

POST http://localhost:5001/api/messages/

{"header_from":     "",
 "header_to":       "",
 "header_subject":  "Sent by Renuntius",
 "content":         "Everything works fine!",
 "service":         "other_service"

Note: For firefox use RESTClient add-on to easily POST.

Getting a list of all messages:

GET http://localhost:5001/api/messages/

(Try http://localhost:5001/api/messages/ within your default browser)

Querying for specific messages:

GET http://localhost:5001/api/messages/?q={"filters":[{"name": "header_from", "op": "==", "val":""}]}

For a detailed specification of how to use filters, please look at flask-restless
