A JSON-RPC client library, backed by requests

Project Description

This is a compact and simple JSON-RPC client implementation written while debugging a picky server.

Main Features

  • Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 compatible
  • Exposes requests options
  • Supports nested namespaces (eg. app.users.getUsers())
  • 100% test coverage


from jsonrpc_requests import Server
server = Server('http://localhost:8080'), 2), baz=2){'foo': 'bar'}), qux=2)

A notification:

from jsonrpc_requests import Server, _notification=True)

Pass through arguments to requests (see also requests documentation)

from jsonrpc_requests import Server
server = Server('http://localhost:8080', auth=('user', 'pass'), headers={'x-test2': 'true'})

Pass through requests exceptions

from jsonrpc_requests import Server, TransportError
server = Server('http://unknown-host')
except TransportError as transport_error:
    print(transport_error.cause) # this will hold a `requests.exceptions.RequestException` instance


Install the Python tox package and run tox, it’ll test this package with various versions of Python.
