Library and command line interface to interact with Drink Management System of Fachschaft TF Uni Freiburg.

Project description

Python3 library with command line interface to interact with the Drink Management System (DMS) of the student council TF Uni Freiburg.

Getting Started


You need python 3.5 or newer and pip. For development you also need git installed on your machine.


Install the dmsclient library and command line interface simply from PyPi:

pip3 install dmsclient

For developers it’s recommended to install from source vie develop. Then all changes in code are automatically available in the library and command line without reinstallation.

git clone git@<git url>:<user>/dmsclient.git
cd dmsclient

python3 develop

Command Line

The installation of dmsclient provides a command line interface dms. For authentication you have to generate a token key in your dms profile settings. Add your token to a .dmsrc file in your home folder.

Token = XxxxxXXXxxxxxXXXXxxxxxxxXXX

Then you can start using dms. You’ll find all available commands via

dms --help

User and product names don’t have to be added exactly, but are estimated from what you type. E.g.:

$ dms buy apfel -u must
Buy Apfelschorle (0.70€) for Max Mustermann? [Y/n]


For communication with the DMS via REST you can use the DmsClient class provided by this library. Authentication is provided via a token key which you can generate in the DMS profile settings. The DmsClient usually returns deep objects where ids were replaced by the corresponding object.

Example code:

from random import sample
from dmsclient import DmsClient

def order_random_stuff_for_last_customer(dms):
    available_products = (p for p in dms.products if p.quantity > 0)
    random_product = sample(available_products, 1)[0]
    last_sale = dms.sale_history(num_days=1)[0]


token = 'XxxxxXXXxxxxxXXXXxxxxxxxXXX'
api_endpoint = ''
dms = DmsClient(token, api_endpoint)

Big thanks to the DMS and DMS-API developers!
