Project description

griffin: RAML reference implementation in Python

Latest Version CI status Development Status License Current coverage Supported Python versions

Requirements and Installation

User Setup

The latest version (currently alpha only) can be found on PyPI, and you can install via pip:

$ pip install griffin --pre

The --pre is needed to download since it’s still in alpha.

Continue onto usage to get started on using griffin.

Supported Python/Systems

Both Linux and OS X are supported.

Developer Setup

If you’d like to contribute or develop upon griffin, be sure to read How to Contribute first.

System requirements:

  • C Compiler (gcc/clang/etc.)

  • If on Linux - you’ll need to install Python headers (e.g. apt-get install python-dev)

  • Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3+, or PyPy

  • virtualenv

Here’s how to set your machine up:

$ git clone
$ cd griffin
$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
(env) $ pip install -r dev-requirements.txt

Run Tests

If you’d like to run tests for all supported Python versions, you must have all Python versions installed on your system. I suggest pyenv to help with that.

To run all tests:

(env) $ tox

To run a specific test setup (options include: py26, py27, py33, py34, pypy, flake8, verbose, manifest, docs, setup, setupcov):

(env) $ tox -e py26

To run tests without tox:

(env) $ py.test
(env) $ py.test --cov griffin --cov-report term-missing

Build Docs

Documentation is build with Sphinx, written in rST, uses the Read the Docs theme with a slightly customized CSS, and is hosted on Read the Docs site.

To rebuild docs locally, within the parent griffin directory:

(env) $ tox -e docs


(env) $ sphinx-build -b docs/ docs/_build


(env) $ cd docs
(env) $ make html

Then within griffin/docs/_build you can open the index.html page in your browser.

Still have issues?

Feel free to drop by #ramlfications on Freenode (webchat) (no dedicated IRC channel - yet) or ping via Twitter. “roguelynn” on IRC is the maintainer, a.k.a econchick on GitHub, and based in San Fran.
