Project description

Generic Rest Client

A generic and simple REST client for your python projects.

How to install

pip install generic_rest_client

How to use

Create your custom class

First you will need to create your own class and extend GenericRestClient, for example, lets see our mocky client.

from generic_rest_client.client import GenericRestClient
...
class MockyRestClient(GenericRestClient):
...

Create custom methods

Every endpoint usually behaves differently, so we will create two functions that knows how to handle the requests.

Obtain all comments

This function knows how to obtain all comments, at least you will have to define:

  • Request type: we know it is a GET request.
  • Endpoint name: in this case '/comments'
  • Body params: in this case it is not required
  • Expected http code: We define HTTP 200 as an expected response.

Then we will have:

...
def get_comments(self):
    ...
    endpoint_url = '/comments'

    return self.get_request(
        urljoin(self.base_url, endpoint_url),
        None,
        [200, ]
    )
...

Create a new post

As we said, we create a function that knows what we will need to create a new post. To create a new post at least we will have to define:

  • Request type: we know it is a POST request.
  • Endpoint name: in this case '/posts'
  • Body params: We create a dictionary that contains all the required params.
  • Expected http code: We define HTTP 201 as an expected response.

Then we will have:

...
def new_post(self, params):
    ...
    endpoint_url = '/posts'

    body_params = dict(
        title=params['title'],
        body=params['body'],
    )

    return self.post_request(
        urljoin(self.base_url, endpoint_url),
        body_params,
        [201, ]
    )
...

Update a post

Just like creating a new post, we will create a new function and define:

  • Request type: we know it is a PUT request.
  • Endpoint name: in this case it will be '/posts/{post_id}'.
  • Body params: We create a dictionary that contains all the required params.
  • Expected http code: We define HTTP 200 as an expected response.
...
def update_post(self, post_id, params):
    ...
    endpoint_url = '/posts/{post_id}'.format(
        post_id=post_id,
    )

    body_params = dict(
        title=params['title'],
        body=params['body'],
    )

    return self.put_request(
        urljoin(self.base_url, endpoint_url),
        body_params,
        [200, ]
    )
...

See? it's really simple. Good luck with your projects! :)
