A Python client for the WordPress JSON API plugin

Project description

A simple Python library for talking to Wordpress in JSON. This library relies on the [WordPress JSON API plugin][1]. This won’t work if your WordPress site doesn’t have the plugin installed.

[1]: “WordPress JSON API”


$ pip install python-wordpress

Or git clone and python install and such.


>>> from wordpress import WordPress
>>> wp = WordPress('')
>>> posts = wp.get_recent_posts()

For now, this only covers the read portions of the API under the core controller. See the [WordPress JSON API documentation][2] for details.


Tests assume a WordPress blog running on [MAMP][3] at http://localhost:8888/wordpress, but you can change that by setting WORDPRESS_BLOG_URL as an environment variable, like so:


[3]: “MAMP!”
