Gazu, Python client for the Kitsu API

The Kitsu Python client allows to fetch data easily from the Kitsu collaboration platform. You can fetch easily your asset and shots data into your pipeline tools. It comes with extra features such as preview publishing and event stream listening.

It is made to be used with the Kitsu API. It requires an up and running instance of Kitsu to run properly.

Install Gazu in your application environment via pip:

pip install gazu

The client requires a few extra configuration before being used. It needs to know where is located the API server and to log in:

import gazu

gazu.log_in("", "password")

Let’s finish with an example. Fetch all the open projects:

projects = gazu.project.all_open_projects()


Documentation and specification are available on a dedicated website:
