Utilities for the Python SPORE client called Britney

Project Description

Britney-utils comes with some utilities to create and manage clients build by Britney.


britney-utils is working on Python 2.7 and Python >= 3.2. To install the module, use pip

$> pip install britney-utils

Use it…

… to create a basic client

You can easily create a client with the get_client function. It will create and save the client to retrieve it later with his name, acting as a cache

import britney_utils

client = britney_utils.get_client('my_client',

… to reset an instance

If an instance is already created with a name you gave in first place, you can easily reset and rebuild it. In this example, we except that the my_client SPORE client already exist

client = britney_utils.get_client('my_client',

A new instance is created with the my_client name and saved

… to create a pre-build instance with middlewares

Creating a rich client with all middlewares needed activated is useful. You can do this like this

from britney.middleware import auth, format
import britney_utils

middlewares = (
    (format.Json, {'predicate': lambda env: env['format'] == 'json'}),
    (auth.Basic, {'username': 'toto', 'password': 'xxxxxx'}

client = britney_utils.get_client('my_client',
