Project description

This Project is currently in Alpha

all requests are directed to


A OSM-Edit API Interface written in Python


This Project is forked from repository osmate I saw the need to write my own code to access the OSM-API for editing. My second requirement was to be able to use OAuth which I haven’t found In any other Python OSM-API yet.


the project is now on pip, so now it is just as easy as

pip install pyosmapi

after that import osm.osm_api

import pyosmapi.osm_api
api = pyosmapi.osm_api.OsmApi()
#init with '' or Fales access testserver (
#by initializing OsmApi(True) you can access the live server
api.get_current_user((<osm-username>, <osm-password>))

I wrote some documentation to every public method. I’ve Implemented all methods from the API v0.6, excluding reduction


Please create an Issue in github for any Bugs and Feature requests. For direct contact to me please write a PM via OSM here. If you want to support me, consider to Donate any amount you like.
