Async library for accessing Swagger-enabled APIs

Project description PyPi version Supported Python versions



Aiobravado is the asyncio version of the bravado library for use with the OpenAPI Specification (previously known as Swagger).

aiobravado requires Python 3.5+ and allows you to use asynchronous programming when interacting with OpenAPI-enabled services. Here’s the breakdown of bravado packages and their use case:

  • bravado - Library to dynamically interact with OpenAPI/Swagger-enabled services. Supports Python 2.7+.

  • fido - HTTP client to enable asynchronous network requests for bravado. Supports Python 2.7+. Depends on twisted. Spins up a separate thread to handle network requests.

  • bravado-asyncio - asyncio-powered asynchronous HTTP client for bravado. Requires Python 3.5+. It is the default HTTP client for aiobravado, but can be used with bravado as well.

  • aiobravado - asyncio-enabled library to dynamically interact with OpenAPI/Swagger-enabled services. Supports basically all of the features of bravado. Requires Python 3.5+. No additional threads are created.

Example Usage

from aiobravado.client import SwaggerClient
client = await SwaggerClient.from_url('')
pet = await
