Python client for CloudFlare.

Project description

Build Status

A Python client for CloudFlare API v4 and Host API.

It provides two levels of integration against the CloudFlare API:

  1. A low level API, with one method per API endpoint (
  2. A high level ORM API (pycloudflare.models).

Only a subset of the CloudFlare API is currently supported:

  • Users
  • Zones
  • Zone Settings
  • DNS Records
  • Page Rules
  • User creation & authentication through CloudFlare’s partner-facing Host API.


Get all our zones at CloudFlare

>>> cf = CloudFlareService(api_key, email)
>>> for domain in cf.get_zones():
>>>     print domain['name'], domain['id']


The Host (Partner) API service client is configured when it is instantiated and reads its configuration from configuration.json.

The configuration file should be in the format:

    "common": {
        "cloudflare": {
            "api_key": "HOST API KEY HERE",


Install development requirements:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Tests can then be run by doing:


The integration tests require a host API key. They can be run with:

nosetests tests/
