Python StackExchange API Client

Project description

Python API client for StackExchange APIv2.1

## Installation

### To Run
pip install pystex

### To Develop Nothing specific now

## Usage

from pystex import Stackexchange from pystex import APIError

client = Stackexchange({Your API Key})

try:
result = client.users.get()
except APIError as e:
print e

In case of having variables for an API call. For example:

http://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/tags/python/top-answerers/all_time?pagesize=30&site=stackoverflow

Please note the API tags/{tag}/top-answerers allow a tag to be a variable. In such cases. It’s safe to use __getattr__() directly. The pystex for above example will be:

skill = ‘python’ result = api_client.tags.__getattr__(skill).__getattr__(‘top-answerers’).all_time.get(pagesize=30, page=1)

It’s also worth to note API url with hyphen isn’t allowed in Python language, thus __getattr__() was used.
