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]: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/json-api/ “WordPress JSON API”

Install:

$ pip install python-wordpress

Or git clone and python setup.py install and such.

Usage:

>>> from wordpress import WordPress
>>> wp = WordPress('http://example.com/blog/')
>>> 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:

WORDPRESS_BLOG_URL=http://wordpress.local.host python test.py
