Python wrapper for the OSM API

Installation

Install osmapi simply by using pip:

pip install osmapi

Development

If you want to help with the development of osmapi, you should clone this repository and install the requirements:

pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -r test-requirements.txt

After that, it is recommended to install the flake8 pre-commit-hook:

flake8 --install-hook

Tests

To run the tests use the following command:

nosetests --verbose

By using tox you can even run the tests against different versions of python (2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3):

tox

Note

Scripted imports and automated edits should only be carried out by those with experience and understanding of the way the OpenStreetMap community creates maps, and only with careful planning and consultation with the local community.

See the Import/Guidelines and Automated Edits/Code of Conduct for more information.

Examples

Read from OpenStreetMap

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi()
print api.NodeGet(123)
# {u'changeset': 532907, u'uid': 14298,
# u'timestamp': u'2007-09-29T09:19:17Z',
# u'lon': 10.790009299999999, u'visible': True,
# u'version': 1, u'user': u'Mede',
# u'lat': 59.9503044, u'tag': {}, u'id': 123}

Constructor

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi(api="api06.dev.openstreetmap.org", username = "you", password = "***")
api = osmapi.OsmApi(username = "you", passwordfile = "/etc/mypasswords")
api = osmapi.OsmApi(passwordfile = "/etc/mypasswords") # username will be first line username

Note: The password file should have the format user:password

Write to OpenStreetMap

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi(username = u"metaodi", password = u"*******")
api.ChangesetCreate({u"comment": u"My first test"})
print api.NodeCreate({u"lon":1, u"lat":1, u"tag": {}})
# {u'changeset': 532907, u'lon': 1, u'version': 1, u'lat': 1, u'tag': {}, u'id': 164684}
api.ChangesetClose()

Attribution

This project was orginally developed by Etienne Chove. This repository is a copy of the original code from SVN (http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/python_lib/OsmApi/OsmApi.py), with the goal to enable easy contribution via GitHub and release of this package via PyPI.
