Interact with GitLab API
python-gitlab is a Python package providing access to the GitLab server API.
It supports the v4 API of GitLab, and provides a CLI tool (gitlab).
As of 3.0.0, python-gitlab is compatible with Python 3.7+.
Use pip to install the latest stable version of python-gitlab:
$ pip install --upgrade python-gitlab
$ pip install git+https://github.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab.git
$ pip install git+https://gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab.git
Using the docker images
python-gitlab provides Docker images in two flavors, based on the Alpine and Debian slim python base images. The default tag is alpine, but you can explicitly use the alias (see below).
The alpine image is smaller, but you may want to use the Debian-based slim tag (currently based on -slim-bullseye) if you are running into issues or need a more complete environment with a bash shell, such as in CI jobs.
The images are published on the GitLab registry, for example:
- registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:latest (latest, alpine alias)
- registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:alpine (latest alpine)
- registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:slim-bullseye (latest slim-bullseye)
- registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:v3.2.0 (alpine alias)
You can run the Docker image directly from the GitLab registry:
$ docker run -it --rm registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:latest <command> ...
For example, to get a project on GitLab.com (without authentication):
$ docker run -it --rm registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:latest project get --id gitlab-org/gitlab
You can also mount your own config file:
$ docker run -it --rm -v /path/to/python-gitlab.cfg:/etc/python-gitlab.cfg registry.gitlab.com/python-gitlab/python-gitlab:latest <command> ...
Building the image
To build your own image from this repository, run:
$ docker build -t python-gitlab:latest .
Run your own image:
$ docker run -it --rm python-gitlab:latest <command> ...
Build a Debian slim-based image:
$ docker build -t python-gitlab:latest --build-arg PYTHON_FLAVOR=slim-bullseye .
