Python library for interacting with the FogBugz API
Python FogBugz API Wrapper
This Python API is simply a wrapper around the FogBugz API, with some help from Leonard Richardson’s BeautifulSoup (http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/) and the magic of Python’s __getattr__().
To use the FogBugz API, install the package either by downloading the source and running
$ python setup.py install
or by using pip
$ pip install fogbugz
A Quick Example:
>>> from fogbugz import FogBugz >>> fb = FogBugz("http://example.fogbugz.com/") # URL is to your FogBugz install >>> fb.logon("firstname.lastname@example.org", "password") >>> resp = fb.search(q="assignedto:tyler") # All calls take named parameters, per the API >>> resp # Responses are BeautifulSoup objects of the response XML. <response><cases count="2"><case ixbug="1" operations="edit,assign,resolve,email,remind"></case><case ixbug="2" operations="edit,spam,assign,resolve,reply,forward,remind"></case></cases></response> >>> # You shouldn't need to know too much about BeautifulSoup, but the documentation can be found here: >>> # http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/documentation.html >>> for case in resp.cases.childGenerator(): # One way to access the cases ... print case['ixbug'] ... 1 2 >>> for case in resp.findAll('case'): # Another way to access the cases ... print case['operations'] ... edit,assign,resolve,email,remind edit,spam,assign,resolve,reply,forward,remind >>> resp = fb.edit(ixbug=1, sEvent="Edit from the API") # Note the named parameters >>> resp <response><case ixbug="1" operations="edit,assign,resolve,email,remind"></case></response>
Note that, per API v5.0, all data between tags, such as the token, is now wrapped in CDATA. BeautifulSoup’s implementation of CData generally allows for it to be treated as a string, except for one important case: CData.__str__() (a.k.a. str(CData)) returns the full text, including the CDATA wrapper (e.g. “<![CDATA[foo]]>”). To avoid accidentally including the CDATA tage, use CData.encode(‘utf-8’)
If your script requires a certain version of the FogBugz API, make sure to pass it as an argument to the constructor. This will protect you from unexpected differences should we make backwards-incompatible changes.
>>> from fogbugz import FogBugz >>> fb = FogBugz("http://example.fogbugz.com", api_version=5)

Much of the API has not been thoroughly tested. Please report bugs to email@example.com
fogbugz_bis is a fork of the FogCreek codebase to support Python 3 and BeautifulSoup 4. You should install/require only one of fogbugz or fogbugz_bis as they both implement the same module.
