A friendly wrapper around the Deezer API.


The package is published on the Python index simply run the following:

pip install deezer-python

And that’s it!

Basic Use

So far you can only retrieve the data for the public objects, for which no login is required. The objects are translated to python resources, which are basically python objects encapsulating the json dictionary returned by the API.

>>> client = deezer.Client()
>>> client.get_album(12).title
u'Monkey Business'

You also can use AsyncClient with tornado.

>>> from tornado.gen import coroutine
>>> from tornado.ioloop import IOLoop
>>> from deezer import AsyncClient
>>> @coroutine
... def main():
...     client = AsyncClient()
...     album = yield client.get_album(12)
...     print(album.title)
>>> IOLoop.instance().run_sync(main)
Monkey Business

See the whole API on the Sphinx generated documentation.

Ran 6 tests in 0.448s


Create a New Release

This project is configured to use bumpversion, only prerequisite is to have it installed. When the tests have passed and you’re happy with the code base, just need to run:

$ bumpversion [major|minor|patch]

Depending on which digit of the version needs to be updated, and then push with tags:

$ git push --tags

Travis will take care of creating the release, and upload it to PyPi.
