Python binding for the Socialtext REST API

Project description

This is a client for Socialtext’s REST API. The goal of this project is to provide an extensible library that helps you focus on building applications that leverage the power of Socialtext instead of worrying about HTTP methods and status codes.

You can read the documentation at:

You can install python-socialtext using pip or easy_install:

pip install python-socialtext

You can use Sphinx to build the documentation locally:

cd docs
make html # windows: use make.bat

# open the _build/index.html document in your browser

Python API

Quick start:

from socialtext import Socialtext

st = Socialtext(url=ST_URL, username=USERNAME, password=PASSWORD)

st.signals.create("This is a signal from the API!")
<Signal: 1234>


<Page: test_page>, <Page: test_page_2>, <Page: test_page_3>

ws = st.workspaces.get("ws-name")
<Page: test_page>, <Page: test_page_2>, <Page: test_page_3>


Development takes place on Github. You can file bug reports and pull requests there.


This project follows the git-flow branch methodology. So, there will always be two branches in the repository:
