Requests based HTTP/REST API client with flexible cache support

Project description

Portale is minimalistic requests based HTTP/REST API client.

Advantage over other libraries: Allows different cache timeout policy for each API

Simple example

from portale import PrefixedURLSession

session = PrefixedURLSession('')

get_thing = session.GETRequest('anything?thing={0}', cache_ttl=10)
thing = get_thing('snake')

get_thing_by_name = session.GETRequest('anything?thing={name}', cache_ttl=10)
thing = get_thing_by_name(name='snake')

long_request = session.GETJSONRequest('delay/{n}', cache_ttl=20)
result1 = long_request(n=2).json()
result2 = long_request(n=2).json()  # cached response


cache_ttl if not specified in Request initialization, session’s cache_ttl is used as default cache_ttl for all the APIs using same session.

from portale import PrefixedURLSession

session = PrefixedURLSession('', cache_ttl=10)
get_thing = session.GETRequest('anything?thing={0}')
long_request = session.GETJSONRequest('delay/{n}')
