Nuxeo REST API Python client

Project description

Client Library for Nuxeo API

Build Status Coverage Lines of code

The Nuxeo Python Client is a Python client library for the Nuxeo Automation and REST API. It works with both Python 2 and 3.

This is an ongoing project, supported by Nuxeo.

Getting Started

The installation is as simple as:

python -m pip install --upgrade nuxeo

Then, use the following import statement to have access to the Nuxeo API:

from nuxeo.client import Nuxeo

Documentation

Check out the API documentation.

Requirements

The Nuxeo Python client works only with:

  • the Nuxeo Platform >= LTS 2015
  • requests >= 2.12.2 (for unicode authentication)
  • setuptools >= 30.3.0

Quick Start

This quick start guide will show how to do basics operations using the client.

Connect to the Nuxeo Platform

The easiest way to connect to the Nuxeo Platform with a basic authentication is passing a tuple containing the username and the password to the client, like so:

nuxeo = Nuxeo(auth=('Administrator', 'Administrator'))

You can then use the nuxeo object to interact with the Platform. If you want to use a specific instance, you can specify the base_url like so:

nuxeo = Nuxeo(
    host='http://demo.nuxeo.com/nuxeo/',
    auth=('Administrator', 'Administrator')
    )

Download/Upload Configuration

In the nuxeo/constants.py file, you have several constants that are used throughout the client that you can change to fit your needs. Some of them are:

  • CHECK_PARAMS (False by default), to check operation’s parameters for each and every HTTP calls.
  • CHUNK_LIMIT (10 Mio by default), the size above which the upload will automatically be chunked.
  • CHUNK_SIZE (8 Kio by default), the size of the chunks when downloading.
  • MAX_RETRY (3 by default), the number of retries for the upload of a given blob/chunk.
  • UPLOAD_CHUNK_SIZE (256 Kio by default), the size of the chunks when uploading.

Run NXQL Queries

You can run queries in NXQL (NXQL is a subset of SQL, you can check how to use it in the documentation). Here, we are first fetching a workspace, and then using its uid to build a query which will find all its children that have a File or Picture type, and are not deleted.

# Fetch a workspace
ws = nuxeo.documents.get(path='/default-domain/workspaces/ws')

# Build a query using its UID
nxql = ("SELECT * FROM Document WHERE ecm:ancestorId = '{uid}'"
        "   AND ecm:primaryType IN ('File', 'Picture')"
        "   AND ecm:currentLifeCycleState != 'deleted'")
query = nxql.format(uid=ws.uid)

# Make the request
search = nuxeo.client.query(query, params={'properties': '*'})

# Get results
entries = search['entries']

entries will be a list containing a dict for each element returned by the query.

Usage

Now that your client is set up, here are pages to help you with the main functions available:

You can also check the API documentation of this Python client for further options.

Contributing

See our contribution documentation.

Setup

git clone https://github.com/nuxeo/nuxeo-python-client
cd nuxeo-python-client
python setup.py develop

Test

A Nuxeo Platform instance needs to be running on http://localhost:8080/nuxeo for the tests to be run, and then:

python setup.py test

Tests can be launched without a server with Maven and pytest:

mvn -f ftest/pom.xml clean verify

Deploying

For the maintainer, the command to distribute the module is:

python3 -m pip install wheel
python3 setup.py sdist bdist_wheel upload
