Python wrapper around Akamai ccuapi including a command line utility
Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 are currently supported. There are currently no
plans to support anything older than Python 2.7
One or more comma-separated email addresses may be set to receive notifications
when a content purge is complete. These are provided in 1 of 3 ways:
- AKAMAI_NOTIFY_EMAIL environment variable.
- In the .akamai config file
- Passing email kwarg to ccuapi.purge.PurgeRequest on initialization.
from ccuapi.purge import PurgeRequest
purger = PurgeRequest()
purger.add('http://domain.com') # this can be a string, or list of strings
results = purger.purge() # returns the status of the request
Command Line Usage
Run ccu_purge -h for additional options.
Using a proxy server
ccuapi_purge will honor the standard proxy environment variables so if you
are running behind a proxy export the proper environment variables:
$ export HTTP_PROXY="http://10.10.1.10:8080"
$ export HTTPS_PROXY="http://10.10.1.10:8080"
- Added support for HTTPS socket timeouts when making Akamai API requests.
- Added support for altering the API endpoint. Thanks elmirjagudin
- Added support for using a custom certificate bundle. Thanks elmirjagudin
- Added support for disabling SSL verification. Thanks elmirjagudin
- Fix bug where purge method was returning the results of a status call
rather than the actual results of the purge
- Fix entry point issue with CLI running
- Python 3 support
- Catch exception in CLI when no username is supplied
This versions marks a fairly significant overhaul to convert to Akamai’s REST
based API. There some backward incompatible changes so be sure to review the
list of changes below:
- Drop Django related code. A separate Django module should be created which
can potentially leverage this library, however having Django related code
in this module didn’t fit well.
- Unittests have been introduced which should make future updates safer
- Pylint and PEP8 compliance
- WSDL has been dropped. Since Akamai won’t be supporting use of the SOAP API
going forward, there was no reason to keep this around
- Project is now tested using Travis-CI
This was the last version which supported the SOAP based API
