Client library for interacting with Gerrit's REST API

Project Description
# Pygerrit2 - Client library for interacting with Gerrit Code Review's REST API


Pygerrit2 provides a simple interface for clients to interact with
[Gerrit Code Review][gerrit] via the REST API.

## Prerequisites

Pygerrit2 is compatible with Python 2.6 and Python 2.7. Support for Python 3
is experimental.

Pygerrit2 depends on the [requests library][requests].

## Installation

To install pygerrit2, simply:

$ pip install pygerrit2

## Usage

This simple example shows how to get the user's open changes. Authentication
to Gerrit is done via HTTP Digest authentication, using an explicitly given
username and password:

from requests.auth import HTTPDigestAuth
from import GerritRestAPI

auth = HTTPDigestAuth('username', 'password')
rest = GerritRestAPI(url='', auth=auth)
changes = rest.get("/changes/?q=owner:self%20status:open")

Note that is is not necessary to add the `/a/` prefix on the endpoint
URLs. This is automatically added when the API is instantiated with an
authentication object.

If the user's HTTP username and password are defined in the `.netrc`

machine login MyUsername password MyPassword

then it is possible to authenticate with those credentials:

from import GerritRestAPI
from import HTTPDigestAuthFromNetrc

url = ''
auth = HTTPDigestAuthFromNetrc(url=url)
rest = GerritRestAPI(url=url, auth=auth)
changes = rest.get("/changes/?q=owner:self%20status:open")

Note that the HTTP password is not the same as the SSH password. For
instructions on how to obtain the HTTP password, refer to Gerrit's
[HTTP upload settings documentation][settings].

Refer to the [example script][example] for a full working example.
