Python package of REST API managers (Betting and Accounts APIs)

Project description

Python package of REST API managers (Betting and Accounts APIs)

HOW TO INSTALL
pip install betfair-python-rest

Create your own class based on the one that comes in the package, indicating the certificate information. Example:

class CustomBetFairAPIManagerBetting(BetFairAPIManagerBetting):
    crt_path = os.path.join('home', 'user', 'your_project', 'client-2048.crt')
    crt_key_path = os.path.join('home', 'user', 'your_project-u', 'client-2048.key')

Now you can use it like that:

api_manager = CustomBetFairAPIManagerBetting(login, password, api_key, log_mode=True)
market_and_locale = MarketFilterAndLocaleForm(text_query='Soccer')
api_manager.list_event_types(request_class_object=market_and_locale)

HOW TO USE (with examples)

In short, the package is designed like this:

managers - API-managers classes

forms - Classes which describing the schemes of data inputs for every method

enums - Classes with a list of possible options for parameter values.

exceptions - There is just two files: exceptions class and enum with variables of error code from server

File with examples of using: example.py

I should clarify a one point: API-methods in Betting branch waiting for form classes objects, not just arguments array. This was done due to the fact that many methods accept the same fields, and sometimes entire sets of fields, and in order to avoid copy-paste of attributes and docstring into dozens of models, it was decided to make each method accept an object of the class of the corresponding form.

True, this leads to the fact that the fields themselves are scattered in dozens of classes, which can cause discomfort when you first familiarize yourself with the package. I tried to smooth out this flaw a little, accompanying each class with explanations.

As a result, if, for example, you want to find the country by the line "land", then you will need to use the MarketFilterAndLocaleForm class and pass arguments there. the names are kept exactly and are only slightly adapted to the Pep8 standard, so that you quickly understand what’s what (especially if autocompletion is included in the IDE)

All forms are located in the forms folder and repeat the names of the requests, so you can easily find them even without auto-completion (I hope)

This feature does not apply to Accounts manager: requests of this category accept few requests, practically do not repeat among themselves according to a set of input data. Therefore, there, at the entrance to the methods, a familiar series of arguments, not a form.
