A Python wrapper for the CheckMate REST API.

Project Description


A Python wrapper for the CheckMate REST API



pip install checkmate-api


easy_install checkmate-api


import checkmate
client = checkmate.CheckMate(api_key='YOUR_KEY_HERE')

Note:: You can also pass in a different API url if needed using the api_base keyword argument.

client = checkmate.CheckMate(api_key='YOUR_KEY_HERE', api_base='API_URL_HERE')

Refer to the documentation for the final word on what’s required/optional for each call.

Search for a property

You can query the API for a property. All of the fields referenced in the query are required.{
    'name': 'Hotel Kabuki',
    'phone': '14159223200',
    'address': {
        'street': '1625 Post St',
        'city': 'San Francisco',
        'region': 'CA',
        'postal_code': '94115',
        'country_code': 'US'

List reservations

You can query the API for all your reservations or the reservations for a specific property.

# paginated list of all reservations

# fetching a different page of reservations
client.reservations.list({'page': 2})

# reservations with a specific confirmation number
client.reservations.list({'confirmation_num': '12349asdf'})

# reservations for property with id 13434543
client.reservations.list({'property_id': 13434543})

# exclude property data from the response
client.reservations.list({'exclude_properties': 'true'})

Show reservation

You can request a specific reservation from the Checkmate API.

# reservation with id 123452

Create reservation

You can create a reservation in Checkmate using either an existing property id, or by creating a new property within the request.

# reservation under property 93
    'external_id': 'someid123',
    'confirmation_number': 'sdlfkjweo324',
    'first_name': 'Jane',
    'last_name': 'Smith',
    'email': '',
    'start_on': '2016-12-20',
    'end_on': '2016-12-24',
    'property_id': 93

# creating a new property
    'external_id': 'someid123',
    'confirmation_number': 'sdlfkjweo324',
    'first_name': 'Jane',
    'last_name': 'Smith',
    'email': '',
    'start_on': '2016-12-20',
    'end_on': '2016-12-24',
    'property': {
        'name': 'New Hotel',
        'address': {
            'street': '123 Leaf Lane',
            'city': 'Brooklyn',
            'region': 'NY',
            'postal_code': '11201',
            'country_code': 'US'

Update reservation

You can update an existing reservation in Checkmate using a reservation_id.

# reservation id 12345
client.reservations.update(12345, {'loyalty_number': 'abs2332'})

Delete reservation

You can delete an existing reservation in Checkmate using a reservation_id.

# reservation id 12345

Bulk create reservations

Each reservation follows the same format as a single reservation (an optional webhook can be added at the end).

    'external_id': 'fdoo',
    'confirmation_number': '',
    'first_name': 'Frank',
    'last_name': 'Smith',
    'email': '',
    'start_on': '2015-12-20',
    'end_on': '2015-12-24',
    'property_id': 123
}, {
    'external_id': 'hfg34',
    'confirmation_number': 'gjhhffgh456',
    'first_name': 'John',
    'last_name': 'Doe',
    'email': '',
    'start_on': '2015-11-20',
    'end_on': '2015-11-24',
    'property_id': 123
}], '')
