Python client for GitHub API
Python client for GitHub API
Note octokit and octokit.py were already taken in the cheese shop
pip install octokitpy
from octokit import Octokit repos = Octokit().repos.list_for_user(username="octokit") for repo in repos.json: print(repo["name"]) # Make an unauthenticated request for octokit's public repositories
from octokit import webhook webhook.verify(headers, payload, secret, events=['push'])
octokit.py provides a function to verify webhooks sent to your application.
dictionary of request headers
string; payload of request
string; secret provided to GitHub to sign webhook
list; events that you want to receive
boolean; whether or not you want to verify the user agent string of the request
boolean; whether or not you want to return the app id from the ping event for GitHub applications. This will only return the id if the event is the ping event. Otherwise the return value will be boolean.
Note that webhook names are available at
from octokit_routes import webhook_names
Instantiate a client with the authentication scheme and credentials that you want to use.
octokit = Octokit(auth='basic', username='myuser', password='mypassword')
response = Octokit(auth='token', token='yak').authorization.get(id=100)
octokit = Octokit(auth='app', app_id='42', private_key=private_key)
octokit = Octokit(auth='installation', app_id='42', private_key=private_key)
For applications, provide the application id either from the ping webhook or the application’s page on GitHub.
private_key is a string of your private key provided for the application.
app scheme will use the application id and private key to get a token for the first installation id of the application.
One can instantiate the Octokit with routes=specification where the specification is one of api.github.com, ghe-2.15, etc.
