Abstraction to interact with GreyNoise API.

Project description

Python GreyNoise Updates

This is an abstract python library built on top of the GreyNoise service. It is preferred that users use this library when implementing integrations or plan to use GreyNoise within their code. The library includes a small client to interact with the API.


Documentation is available here: Documentation

Quick Start

Install the library:

pip install greynoise or python install

Save your configuration:

greynoise setup --api-key <your-API-key>


This python package follows semantic versioning. According to this:

  • We will NEVER push a breaking change without a major version release.
  • We will only add new features and/or bug fixes with minor version releases.
  • We will only do bug fixes for patch version release.

As such, we recommend you pin the dependency on this SDK to only allow minor version changes at most:

# allow patch version increments

# allow minor version increments
