Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/mattermostdriver.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/mattermostdriver.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/mattermostdriver.svg

Python Mattermost Driver (APIv4)

Info

The repository will try to keep up with the master of https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-api-reference

If something changes, it is most likely to change because the official mattermost api changed.

Installation

pip install mattermostdriver

Documentation

Documentation can be found at https://vaelor.github.io/python-mattermost-driver/ .

Usage

from mattermostdriver import Driver

foo = Driver({
    # Required options
    'url': 'mattermost.server.com',
    'login_id': 'user.name',
    'password': 'verySecret',
    # Optional / defaults to
    'scheme': 'https',
    'port': 8065,
    'basepath': '/api/v4',
    # Use False if self signed/insecure certificate
    'verify': True,
    # The interval the websocket will ping the server to keep the connection alive
    'timeout': 30,
})

# Most of the requests need you to be logged in, so calling login()
# should be the first thing you do after you created your Driver instance.
# login() returns the raw response
foo.login()

# You can make api calls by using api['yourendpointofchoice'].
# The names of the endpoints and requests are almost identical to
# the names on the api.mattermost.com/v4 page.
# API calls always return the json the server send as a response.
foo.api['users'].get_user_by_username('another.name')

# If the api request needs additional parameters
# you can pass them to the function in the following way:
# - Path parameters are always simple parameters you pass to the function
foo.api['user'].get_user(user_id='me')

# - Query parameters are always passed by passing a `params` dict to the function
foo.api['teams'].get_teams(params={...})

# - Request Bodies are always passed by passing an `options` dict or array to the function
foo.api['channels'].create_channel(options={...})

# See the mattermost api documentation to see which parameters you need to pass.
foo.api['channels'].create_channel(options={
    'team_id': 'some_team_id',
    'name': 'awesome-channel',
    'display_name': 'awesome channel',
    'type': 'O'
})

# If you want to make a websocket connection to the mattermost server
# you can call the init_websocket method, passing an event_handler.
# Every Websocket event send by mattermost will be send to that event_handler.
# See the API documentation for which events are available.
foo.init_websocket(event_handler)

# To upload a file you will need to pass a `files` dictionary
channel_id = foo.api['channels'].get_channel_by_name_and_team_name('team', 'channel')['id']
file_id = foo.api['files'].upload_file(
            channel_id=channel_id
            files={'files': (filename, open(filename))})['file_infos'][0]['id']

# track the file id and pass it in `create_post` options, to attach the file
foo.api['posts'].create_post(options={
    'channel_id': channel_id,
    'message': 'This is the important file',
    'file_ids': [file_id]})
