Python module for interacting with the GovDelivery API

Project description


A quite incomplete client for the GovDelivery Communications Cloud API v1.

Currently, you can subscribe a user; manage their topics, categories, and question responses; and get the list of available topics.

The GovDelivery Communications Cloud API is described here:


Officially supports both Python 2.7 and Python 3.6.


pip install govdelivery

Running the tests

To lint the code and execute the unit tests, we recommend using tox.

  1. Install tox in a virtualenv or in your global Python environment by running pip install tox.

    Alternately, we also like using pipx for installing and running system-wide tools like tox.

  2. Run all the tests in one go with tox.

  3. If you want to run just the linting tools (flake8 and isort), you can run tox -e lint.

  4. If you want to run tests in just Python 2 or just Python 3, you can run tox -e py27 or tox -e py36.
