Client to the Orlo deployment _data capture API

Project description

Python client for the [Orlo]( server.


pip install orloclient


If orlo server is on the same box, put a section in /etc/orlo.ini:


Otherwise, orloclient will read the ini file above from ~/.orlo.ini or `` ./orlo.ini``.

This is the only configuration at present and is not required, it just saves you from constantly having to type --uri on the command line.

Command-line Usage

With an Orlo server running on localhost:5000, and client/uri configured in orlo.ini:

$ orloclient create-release -p test -u alex
Created release with id e42a478f-cc08-42e9-a9fb-c98ec65c414d

$ orloclient create-package e42a478f-cc08-42e9-a9fb-c98ec65c414d test-package 1.0.0
Created package with id 7510ffc0-4f0e-4fc1-925f-96ecb84e6db8

$ orloclient start 7510ffc0-4f0e-4fc1-925f-96ecb84e6db8

$ orloclient stop 7510ffc0-4f0e-4fc1-925f-96ecb84e6db8

There are two test suites, test_orloclient and test_integration. The former tests the orlo client functions while mocking the requests library, courtesy of HTTPretty <>, while the integration tests run an actual Orlo server to test against.
