Python client for GitHub API

Project description

Python client for GitHub API

Installation

Note octokit and octokit.py were already taken in the cheese shop

pip install octokitpy

Documentation

https://octokitpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

Examples

REST API:

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

Webhooks:

from octokit import webhook
webhook.verify(headers, payload, secret, events=['push'])

octokit.py provides a function to verify webhooks sent to your application.

headers
dictionary of request headers
payload
string; payload of request
secret
string; secret provided to GitHub to sign webhook
events
list; events that you want to receive
verify_user_agent
boolean; whether or not you want to verify the user agent string of the request
return_app_id
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

Authentication

Instantiate a client with the authentication scheme and credentials that you want to use.

basic:

octokit = Octokit(auth='basic', username='myuser', password='mypassword')

token:

response = Octokit(auth='token', token='yak').authorization.get(id=100)

app:

octokit = Octokit(auth='app', app_id='42', private_key=private_key)

app installation:

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. The private_key is a string of your private key provided for the application. The app scheme will use the application id and private key to get a token for the first installation id of the application.

API Schema/Routes/Specifications

One can instantiate the Octokit with routes=specification where the specification is one of api.github.com, ghe-2.15, etc.

Data

The octokit client based on the available route data and webhook data
