Unofficial Python API to interface with

Project Description

Unofficial Python API for interfacing with, a Dutch website used by students to manage dinner status and expenses.

Current features include:

  • List all residents
  • Get name of the list
  • Get or set the noticeboard
  • Get or set the dinner status


To install this module, run pip install python-eetlijst to install from Pip. If you prefer to install the latest version from Github, use pip install git+


Three examples are included in the examples/ folder. The purpose is to demonstrate some functionality.

Print or set the current dinner status, in a terminal window. Run it with <username> <password> get|set.

It shall print something similar to this, when getting the current status:

Dinner status for 2014-03-30. The deadline is 16:00:00, and has passed.

In total, 4 people (including guests) will attend diner.

Unknown1 | Unknown2 | Unknown3 | Unknown4 | Unknown5
   C     |  D + 2   |    X     |    X     |    ?

X = No, C = Cook, D = Dinner, ? = Unknown

View or change the current noticeboard. Run it with <username> <password> get|set.

Given a session id, print the name of the Eetlijst list. Run it with <session_id>


Currently, basic tests have been written. These tests only verify the ‘scraping’ functionality and correct sesision handling, by faking responses. However, they do not test any submit functionality, since it would require an active connection with during the tests.

To run the tests, please clone this repository and run python test.


This is future work :-)

For now, please look at the source code, the tests and the examples.
