Python common code for Directory API clients.
Directory Client Core.
Common code for the Directory API clients.
pip install directory-client-core
from directory_client_core.base import AbstractAPIClient class MyAPIClient(AbstractAPIClient): version = 1 # passed as a header in all requests def get_something(self): return self.get(...) def create_sometime(self): return self.post(...) client = MyAPIClient( base_url='https://example.com/', api_key='test', sender_id='test-sender-id', timeout=2, ) response = client.get_something()
directory_client_core.helpers.fallback can be used to cache the responses from the remote server, allowing the cached content to be later used if the remote server does not return the up to date live content (maybe it times out, maybe the server is down). This decorator also saves etag response headers to later expose them in requests and respect 304 (Not modified) response and serve already cached contents.
# settings.py DIRECTORY_CLIENT_CORE_CACHE_EXPIRE_SECONDS = 60 * 60 * 24 * 30 # 30 days # client.py from django.core.cache import caches from directory_client_core import helpers from directory_client_core.base import AbstractAPIClient class APIClient(AbstractAPIClient): version = 1 @helpers.fallback(cache=caches['fallback']) def get(self, *args, **kwargs): return super().get(*args, **kwargs) def retrieve(self): return self.get(url='/some/path/')
fallback creates log entries when cache events occur. To reduce noise
DIRECTORY_CLIENT_CORE_CACHE_LOG_THROTTLING_SECONDS can be set in settings. This will result in a log event being created only once every period of time. By default this means seeing "cache hit for url x" (for a given url) is shown once every 24 hours.
