Project Description

Note: The Bigcommerce API client is now located in the bigcommerce package.

Wrapper over the requests library for communicating with the Bigcommerce v2 API.

Needs requests and streql (run pip install bigcommerce-api for easiest way to install), and nose and vcrpy to run the tests.

Usage

Connecting

import bigcommerce

# OAuth2-based connection
# Access_token is optional, if you don't have one you can use oauth_fetch_token (see below)
api = bigcommerce.api.BigcommerceApi(client_id='', store_hash='', access_token='')

# Legacy Basic authentication
api = bigcommerce.api.BigcommerceApi(host='https://store.mybigcommerce.com', auth=('username', 'api token'))

BigcommerceApi also provides two helper methods for connection with OAuth2:

  • api.oauth_fetch_token(client_secret, client_secret, code, context, scope, redirect_uri) – fetches and returns an access token for your application. As a side effect, configures api to be ready for use.
  • BigcommerceApi.oauth_verify_payload(signed_payload, client_secret) – Returns user data from a signed payload.

Accessing and objects

The api object provides access to each API resource, each of which provides CRUD operations, depending on capabilities of the resource:

api.Products.all()                         # GET /products
api.Products.get(1)                        # GET /products/1
api.Products.create(name='', type='', ...) # POST /products
api.Products.get(1).update(price='199.90') # PUT /products/1
api.Products.delete_all()                  # DELETE /products
api.Products.get(1).delete()               # DELETE /products/1

The client provides full access to subresources, both as independent resources:

api.ProductOptions.get(1)                  # GET /products/1/options
api.ProductOptions.get(1, 2)               # GET /products/1/options/2

And as helper methods on the parent resoource:

api.Products.get(1).options()              # GET /products/1/options
api.Products.get(1).options(1)             # GET /products/1/options/1

These subresources implement CRUD methods in exactly the same way as regular resources:

api.Products.get(1).options(1).delete()

Filters

Filters can be applied to all methods as keyword arguments:

customer = api.Customers.all(first_name='John', last_name='Smith')[0]
orders = api.Orders.all(customer_id=customer.id)

Error handling

Minimal validation of data is performed by the client, instead deferring this to the server. A HttpException will be raised for any unusual status code:

  • 3xx status code: RedirectionException
  • 4xx status code: ClientRequestException
  • 5xx status code: ServerException

The low level API

The high level API provided by bigcommerce.api.BigcommerceApi is a wrapper around a lower level api in bigcommerce.connection. This can be accessed through api.connection, and provides helper methods for get/post/put/delete operations.
