Build Status PyPI version

Explore APIs from your console with API Buddy

Right now, only OAuth2 authentication is supported. It's the most common, and current gold standard for security best practices. Also most APIs use it. That said, I have no beef with all the APIs out there using something else, so feel free to open a ticket if you want something else supported. 🎟

You can also always manually set headers.


It's as easy as:

api get some-endpoint
=> 200
  "look": "I haz data",
  "thx": "API Buddy"

HTTP Method defaults to get:

api this-endpoint  # same as first example

You can add query params in key=val format:

api get \
  my/favorite/endpoint \
  first_name=cosmo \

You can also add request body data in JSON format:

api post \
  some-endpoint \
  '{"id": 1, "field": "value"}'

🤔 Note the single-quotes. You can expand this accross multiple lines:

api post \
  some-endpoint \
     "id": 1,
     "field": "value"

Preferences 👉


  • http_method: (optional, default=get) The HTTP method to use in your request.
    • It should be one of:
      • get
      • post
      • patch
      • put
      • delete
  • endpoint: (required) The relative path to an API endpoint.
    • AKA you don't need to type the base api url again here.
  • params: (optional) A list of key=val query params
  • data: (optional) A JSON string of requets body data.
    • You can't use this with get because HTTP.


  • -h, --help: Show the help message
  • -v, --version: Show the installed version
