Simple API Wrapper

Simple API Wrapper

Overview

Recently noticed a pattern and repeated pieces of code in Python API wrappers for simple requests and polling. A separate Python package will minimize code duplication and encourage de-coupling of logic from the API request functions.

Installation

At the command line:

$ easy_install apiwrapper

Or, if you have virtualenvwrapper installed:

$ mkvirtualenv apiwrapper
$ pip install apiwrapper

Getting started with a simple request

# as a helper class
from apiwrapper import APIWrapper

my_api = APIWrapper()
url = 'https://api.github.com/users/ardydedase/repos'
resp = my_api.make_request(url=url)
print(resp)

# as a parent class
class GithubAPI(APIWrapper):
    def get_repos(self, username):
        """
        Uses `make_request` method
        """
        url = "https://api.github.com/users/{username}/repos".format(username=username)
        return self.make_request(url, method='get', headers=None, data=None, callback=None)

More features including polling

Read the docs: https://apiwrapper.readthedocs.org/en/latest/usage.html

Or use apiwrapper/apiwrapper.py as a reference. Implementation is straightforward.
