## Installation

Install from PyPi using [pip](http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/), a
package manager for Python.

pip install buttercms-python


## Usage

Getting started with the ButterCMS API couldn't be easier. Use your authorization token to create a ButterCMS client.

```python
from butter_cms import ButterCMS

auth_token = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
client = ButterCMS(auth_token)
```

All methods return dictionaries. The data can be navigated using keys and indexes like the example below.

```python
response = client.posts.all()

posts = response['data']
# posts now contains a list of post dictionaries

my_post = posts[0]
# my_post contains the first returned post

print(my_post)
# {
# "url": "http://www.example.com/blog/this-is-a-blog-post",
# "created": "2015-06-12T13:59:32.441289Z",
# "published": "2015-06-12T00:00:00Z",
# ...
# }
```

### Pages

The Page's `.all()` and `.get()` methods accept an optional `params` to add additional data to the response.

```python
client.pages.all('news')

# Optional params
client.pages.all('news', {'foo': 'bar'})
```


```python
client.pages.get('news', 'hello-world')

# Optional params
client.pages.get('news', 'hello-world', {'foo': 'bar'})
```

### Content Fields

The Content Field's .get() method accepts an optional `params` to add additional data to the response.

```python
client.content_fields.get(['homepage_headline', 'homepage_title'])

# Localization
client.content_fields.get(['homepage_headline', 'homepage_title'], {'locale': 'en'})

# Test Mode
client.content_fields.get(['homepage_headline', 'homepage_title'], {'test': 1})

### Blog Engine

#### Posts

```python
client.posts.all({'page_size': 3, 'page': 1, 'exclude_body': 'true'})
```


```python
client.posts.get('hello-world')
```


```python
client.posts.search('query', {'page': 1, 'page_size': 10})
```

#### Authors

The Author's `.all()` and `.get()` methods accept an optional `params` to add additional data to the response.

* `{'include':'recent_posts'}`: Adds each author's posts under the `recent_posts` key in that author's returned dictionary

```python
client.authors.all()
client.authors.all({'include':'recent_posts'})
```


```python
client.authors.get('jennifer-smith')
client.authors.get('jennifer-smith', {'include':'recent_posts'})
```
